Digital mining in the age of social awareness

Exploring the mining industry's new normal

In February 2021, Wikistrat and Sandpit Innovation partnered together to run an online simulation which explored scenarios for the mining industry in 2030, focused on exploring how ESG and digital factors will combine and shape the industry in the next decade. 

“In 2030, the world will have changed in ways that will have profound effects on the mining industry and the people who rely on it. A shifting geopolitical landscape, demographic change, technological innovations, ecological changes, new methods of transportation, and increasing social awareness among consumers and employees are all drivers of change both today and in the future.

“However, the synergy between these drivers will combine in new ways that will drive the global dynamics into a different paradigm than that of today. These changes will impact the future for many mining firms, and the mining industry will need to transform itself to respond to the instability impacting many firms that will face novel and familiar challenges.

The challenge today is determining what the future trends and drivers are, how they will combine to shape the future, what the market implications for the mining industry are, and what capabilities are required to meet these challenges.”
