RESOLVE and the World Economic Forum publish White Paper on Voluntary Responsible Mining Initiatives
Mar 9, 2016
On behalf of RESOLVE and the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on the Future of Mining and Metals, it is our pleasure to share “Voluntary Responsible Mining Initiatives: A Review,” our white paper on voluntary responsible mining initiatives. The white paper is informed by a survey with over 100 respondents on perceptions regarding current initiatives and future directions. The paper was presented last weekend at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) conference in Toronto, where session participants discussed the survey findings and key conclusions, as well as potential next steps.
The white paper will be used to help stakeholders, ranging from upstream miners to retailers and manufacturers, to inform decisions about where to focus and what to prioritize as they seek to de-risk supply chains and promote responsible sourcing. We invite you to circulate this paper among your networks.
