Digbee has been endorsed by leading financial firms who support the Digbee ESG initiative such as Blackrock, BMO, and Dundee Corporation.
“Taking a leadership role in developing a strong ESG strategy is important to advance our current portfolio of copper assets, and to support our corporate development efforts to build a larger and successful copper business. We view having a strong ESG strategy as a competitive advantage, and personally, a rewarding aspect of our business,” said Jay Chmelauskas, Camino President & CEO. “Copper is the enabling metal for sustainable electrified businesses and renewable energy. Thus, when copper mining is implemented with state-of-art practices, it forms a key part of our sustainable economy.”
