Thursday, 20 October 2022

The Parliamentary Select Committee on Mines and Energy officially visited Gold Fields Ghana Limited (Tarkwa mine) to assess work done by Genser Energy to provide the mine with sustainable power for mining operations.

During the visit, the General Manager for the Tarkwa mine, Stephen Osei-Bempah, briefed the Committee about Tarkwa’s operations and ESG priorities, highlighting the mine’s decarbonisation plan.

“One of the three strategies which helps us deliver on our Purpose is building on our leading environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments. That is why, we have committed to reducing carbon emissions by 30% by 2030 and net zero by 2050,” said Stephen Osei-Bempah, General Manager for Tarkwa mine.

He also shared success stories about the socio-economic development projects and programmes in the host communities, funded by the Gold Fields Ghana Foundation.

The Committee members were also given a tour of the Genser power plant, which has been pivotal in meeting the Tarkwa mine’s power needs.
