“Our prospective research has to do with raising hypotheses that appear in the relationship between the mining company and suppliers, regarding how they perceive innovation and sustainable practices,” he noted.

Meanwhile, 25% prefer that they focus on reducing the carbon footprint in their operations, he highlighted.

“When we asked (mining companies) where suppliers should put the focus of innovation, they told us operational safety, operational cost reduction, equipment productivity mainly and, at the bottom, sustainability.”

This idea is reinforced by the fact that 53% of respondents indicated that they have not thought about changing their technological provider to achieve efficiency in the mine’s work, the specialist explained.

“Deep down, everyone would like to change suppliers, but not everyone sees that there is a better one than the one they have. So what happens is that suppliers tend to maintain their position, and equally with innovation,” he concluded.
