Chris sapphuis vision for a sustainable future.

(CBC)In an interview with The Globe and Mail, the mining magnate and co-owner of Sapphire Point said that while his current focus is on the gold industry, his future vision is to be a leader in renewable energy.

“I’m trying to lead in the energy field because it’s such a vital industry and so much of the energy we use is renewable,” sapphit said.

“We’re not talking about a lot of energy in the world, but I want to make a difference.”

He said he has a vision for how to make the industry a sustainable place to work, and to use his vast experience in mining to make that happen.

“It’s important that we don’t just have an energy economy,” sappe said.

“We have a mining economy, and it’s the energy economy that makes the world go round.”

He also wants to see more indigenous leaders joining the industry, and for that to happen, he wants to have them join him as co-owners.

“There are no good leaders, there are no leaders who are going to take responsibility,” sape said.

“I want to see them taking responsibility to the mining community.”
