The analysis of the forward zinc market by the Wood Mackenzie zinc markets team shows that there is a clear need for future zinc smelting capacity. However, this must now be built using the principles of ESG (Environmental, Social & Corporate Governance). This insight reviews these principles in line with current developments in the zinc smelting industry to show how new greenfield and brownfield projects can align with them. It is clear that when developing a new smelter project and the technical and economic evaluation, an ESG evaluation is also critical for a successful project. This is already becoming evident in company behaviours and development strategies.
