Mining Journal Global Leadership Report 2021

This report looks at the priorities on the C-suite agenda: where the current focus of mining company executives lies, and where they should be looking for the future. 

This time last year, the world was blighted by the emergence of a novel coronavirus: COVID-19.

Miners sought to understand what this pandemic meant for them while responding to an undercurrent of enduring challenges that executives have been tackling over a number of years. These range from ‘transformation’ of the industry (think digitalisation), to gaining the coveted ‘trust’ of all stakeholders (think social licence) – alongside the usual crop of more ‘traditional’ issues (think reserve replacement).

 A year on from its inaugural findings and the start of an unprecedented global crisis, the annual Global Leadership Report, brought to you by Mining Journal Intelligence, tracks the most prominent C-suite challenges today, as well as identifying how these might change for the C-suites of the future in an ever-changing world. Results from the Global Leadership Survey prioritise and analyse the issues on the C-suite Agenda both today and tomorrow from different stakeholder perspectives, supported by unparalleled industry guidance from interviews with C-suite executives of mining’s largest companies (>US$1bn market cap).



Mining Journal Intelligence has developed a comprehensive and unique view of the C-suite Agenda at a mining company by evaluating the most prominent C-suite challenges in the current landscape, and what these might look like in 10 years’ time.

The results of our industry-wide Global Leadership Survey also provide unparalleled insight into the areas where the C-suite should be focused both now and in 2030, according to the industry’s key stakeholder groups including METS companies, investors, and a mining company’s employees. These findings have the added benefit of being drilled down based on demographics including age, gender, and geography.

 The survey’s findings, combined with Mining Journal Intelligence-exclusive interviews with the world’s leading resources company executives, reveal not only the full hierarchy of priorities on the C-suite Agenda both today and tomorrow, but which overarching themes – trust, transformation, and traditional issues – are painting the agenda’s trajectory.
