    Description: In its ESG report card, S&P concluded that: "Environmental risks for metals and mining companies are among the highest across all sectors . . . main social tensions arise from fears of pollution, water usage conflicts, and economic/landscape impacts on nearby communities . . . and governance of high-rated companies tend to be the best, especially for those located in jurisdictions with long histories in mining."
