Why gold sector M&A could be spurred by ESG

Agnico Eagle (TSE:AEM) will have a broader platform for environmental social governance initiatives if its proposed merger goes ahead, said Agnico Eagle CEO Sean Boyd.
Boyd spoke to Kitco on Tuesday. Earlier this month, Agnico Eagle and Kirkland Lake Gold (TSE:KL) announced a merger. Boyd sees an opportunity as more investors look at ESG investments.
“As the gold sector looks at consolidation, one of the opportunities is around ESG,” said Boyd.
