There are no easy answers when it comes to coal and the environment, but let Steve D’Esposito tell you why he has been invited to talk to leaders in the coal sector at their upcoming national conference in Vancouver:
“I’ll be heading to Vancouver to speak at the 2011 Canadian Coal Conference—I’ll speak to a plenary session on the morning of September 26thon the topic of “meeting coal’s environmental challenges.” Why have I been invited? Because industry leaders want to hear from someone with an outside-the-sector perspective on these challenges and explore the potential to collaborate to find solutions. There aren’t likely to be easy answers but as long as coal is being mined, processed and burned to generate power this seems like a pretty important discussion to have.”
What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Sustainability today requires something different: support for rapid innovation and collaborative leadership, safe space for risk taking, and partnerships formed across sectors. This requires the design of new systems and tools that support a collaborative approach. I call this Sustainability 3.0 and my keynote remarks at the 2011 SME Annual Meeting & Exhibit and CMA 113th National Western Mining Conference “Shaping a Strong Future Through Mining” explore progress and new challenges, for the mining industry, NGOs and society. Take a look.
