The Unicorns Podcast connects you to some of the best and brightest founders, CEOs, executives, business owners, VCs and inspiring leaders who make things happen and inspire others.

Hosted by former broadcast journalist and PR veteran, Justin Kelly, we chat to leaders on the front line on how to get started, what it takes to build a successful business, how to overcome challenges, and advice for those on a similar journey.

In this episode, Justin talks with Andrew Sparke, executive chairman of QMines (ASX:QML) – Australia’s first zero carbon copper and gold developer.

QMines recently became just the third ASX-listed resources company to be certified carbon neutral by the Australian government following a rigorous and independent auditing process.

The company has been aggressively advancing its zero-carbon vision, including recently striking a deal with an Australian company for the long-term supply of renewable fuel, targeting an initial 20% reduction in scope 1 diesel emissions from drilling and exploration activities.

In this episode Andrew talks about why Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is an important focus for QMines and investors, how becoming net zero is not just a mission for the majors, and the progress being made at the Mt Chalmers copper and gold project in Queensland.
