ABSTRACT
The article explores the Green Mining Industry Initiative, a risk management scheme for the future of the mining industry. Factors such uncontrollable increases in energy costs, increased regulations for diesel fuel emissions and energy intermittencies are costing mining firms more time, money and labor. One of the advantages of using alternative, self-generating energy solutions for mining is availability of tax incentive programs. The Green Mining Industry Initiative is a challenge that the mining industry should embrace in order to become energy independent and more risk averse.
