KPMG’s experts from across the Australian firm have collaborated to develop an inventory of the risks facing Mining Companies in 2017. This overview is intended to provide a better understanding of the risks organisations may face in the short to medium term across all aspects of the business.
Companies worldwide, are bracing themselves for a year of increased uncertainty driven by growing concerns over political developments, increasing volatility in the market and technology disruption. The mining industry is no different.
Whilst the risks are neatly listed under the headings Social Licence to Operate and Technology and Innovation, in reality many of these risks are interconnected. During the year further insights will be distributed on a number of the risks listed as well as on how interconnectivity can be better understood and hence managed.
