This report summarizes the top business risks and opportunities for the mining industry in 2023, which reflect the competing priorities for miners in a fast-changing, volatile world. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) remains the number one challenge, but one that is broadening in scope and complexity. Meanwhile, global conflict and resource nationalism have pushed geopolitics higher up the ranking, requiring miners to develop a deeper understanding of the impact of geopolitics on strategy. Other risks and opportunities include climate change and net-zero pathways, supply chains and global disruptions to trade, and new business models.
