IMARC SDG poll 2019

IMARC SDG poll 2019

At the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Melbourne this year, we introduced our Sustainability services to the sector and asked attendees about priorities aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


We asked:

Which 3 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are most relevant to your organisations’ future success?

These are our results.

2019 Pulse

Keen to benchmark the priorities for people working across the global mining & resources sector in 2019, we worked closely with IMARC organisers to develop a live poll for delegates to vote through the conference app, with results also tallied at our exhibition stand.
While the number one priority may not come as a surprise, many people were keen to expand their choices beyond three. In light of this and other insights, we include the nominated top 5 priorities here:

  • GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

  • GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

  • GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-Being

  • GOAL 5: Gender Equality

  • GOAL 11: Sustainable Cites and Communities

Social license and long term impact

There was unprecedented international attention on IMARC this year, with protestors and ensuing media putting a spotlight on the industry as a whole.
The theme of ‘social license to operate’ occupied the programme on day two with various sessions focused on issues that align to the SDGs overall. With this level of focus, there was great consensus that the adoption of sustainable practices will become increasingly crucial to the long-term success in of the industry.
