RPMGlobal to acquire Australian ESG mining services company Nitro Solutions

Mining technology services provider RPMGlobal has entered into an acquisition agreement for environmental social and governance (ESG)-focused services company Nitro Solutions Pty, in a move that will unify RPM’s ESG team into one division.

Privately owned Nitro provides ESG services to the mining sector in the areas of environmental approvals, impact assessment, regulatory advice, environmental audits, compliance reporting (due diligence) and environmental economics, policy and legislation advice.

Following completion of the deal, RPM’s ESG professionals – who are currently based across the globe – will be led by Nitro’s founder and CEO Ngaire Tranter.

“It’s clear that RPMGlobal is passionate about building a premier mining ESG business supported by state-of-the-art software products, and I, together with the rest of the team, really look forward to joining RPMGlobal on this exciting journey,” she said.

RPM has been delivering premier consulting and advisory services to the global mining industry for more than 50 years, with its current focus on providing transformative software solutions to mining companies.

The firm’s CEO Richard Mathews said the Nitro deal was just the start of RPM’s ESG journey, with plans in place to grow its ESG division with mining services capabilities through a range of organic and non-organic strategies.
