Mining is the Future
Three-Step Process to Achieve Sustainability in Mining
by Alp Bora

Metals and minerals are all around us in our everyday lives. They’re used in everything from cars and kitchen appliances to smartphones and complex medical equipment. These natural resources are also integral to many forms of renewable energy. Mining is part of our transition to a clean future. As we expand the use of clean energy technologies, such as wind and solar power, the demand for metals and minerals will continue to grow exponentially. Yet if the mining industry is not clean, can we really call renewable energy technologies clean? To meet this increasing demand while protecting the environment, we must transition to sustainable mining practices. At the same time, we must double our efforts to improve the negative public perception of mining. Without the support of a committed and well-informed public, fundamental change in mining is not possible. This book offers a three-part framework that demonstrates how sustainability in the mining industry is possible. When these three components are integrated, the future of mining and renewable energy will truly be green. In mining, we don’t just dig a hole in the ground. We build the world. We build the future of the world. Let’s do it sustainably together.
