ESG solutions backed by real world experience

Turn theoretical frameworks into sustainable outcomes

Who we are

Genesg is a niche ESG and sustainability consulting firm, led by mining industry leaders with over 50 years of collective experience. Our mission it is to work hand-in-hand with organisational leaders, developing and implementing progressive sustainability and ESG strategies that not only meet today’s standards but set the stage for a brighter, fairer and just future.

We offer a 360-degree approach to sustainability based on our boots on the ground experience at the site level and at the corporate level – our advice is practical and implementable.

Our services encompass a wide range of needs from materiality assessments (including double materiality) and the development of sustainability management systems, to due diligence assessments supporting financial transactions, and audits/gap analyses of regulatory compliance, sustainability standards and frameworks, and other global frameworks such as the Equator Principles and IFC Performance Standards.

While we pride ourselves on our expertise in our domain, we recognise that we don’t know everything. Therefore, our method is inherently collaborative; we engage with technical specialists across fields such as biodiversity, decarbonisation, water management, and climate change adaptation to ensure our clients receive precisely what they need.

Suzanne Davis-Hall

Suzanne Davis-Hall

Founder and Principal

Suzanne’s career began in the ’90s as an Exploration Geochemist in West Africa, where she managed greenfield exploration projects, and so was often the first face of the company in remote communities. She realized that there was a disconnect between the company’s approach and the needs and desires of the communities, which caused friction and unrealistic expectations on both sides. This early experience shaped her lifelong mission to create long-term, mutually-beneficial outcomes rather than short-term “wins.”

She specializes in creating sustainable frameworks for organizational success, with hands-on experience implementing and managing on-site environmental and community programs, as well as developing corporate-level sustainability and ESG strategy. Suzanne holds certifications as a Sustainability Professional, Environmental Professional, Lead Environmental Management Systems Auditor and is an approved assessor for The Copper Mark. Her educational background includes an MBA from IE Business School and Bachelor’s Degrees from The Australian National University and the University of Western Australia.

Mike Hall

Mike Hall

Founder and Principal

Mike started as a production and exploration geologist, quickly moving to troubleshooting roles in international mining projects. A site visit with company leadership and board members demonstrated to him that there was a critical knowledge gap in decision-making, prompting him to pivot his career towards corporate and commercial strategy.

Transitioning to law and finance, Mike gained valuable expertise in corporate governance at Rio Tinto. His skill set includes transaction management, negotiation, financial modeling, and risk management.

Today, Mike specializes in sustainability and ESG, advising clients on optimizing processes from a multi-faceted standpoint. He holds a BSc in Geology and a Bachelor of Laws from Monash University, along with a Master of Applied Finance from Kaplan Business School. He has been admitted to practice as a Solicitor in Australia and is a member of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.
