Sustainability

Modern mines have to be operated in a manner that is sustainable. Assessing sustainability of mineral projects (actual or designed) is not a trivial exercise. This is also complicated by stakeholder aspirations, which must be assessed and managed through community engagement. Finally, it is important for leaders to have a plan for the entire mining life cycle (including closure and post-mining land use) that ensures a thriving community and eco-system. Sphinx can help you navigate these challenges using evidence-based approaches based on Dr. Kwame Awuah-Offei’s research on reclamation, community engagement, energy efficiency, and sustainability assessment. Our services include:

  1. Reviewing and designing sustainability reporting metrics and programs;
  2. Reviewing and designing community engagement programs with statistically sound techniques to draw valid conclusions;
  3. Designing energy audits and energy efficiency improvement measures (especially in material handling operations; and
  4. Designing reclamation plans to support sustainable post-mining land-uses.
