Social Responsibility in the Mining Industry

Graham Marshall - Monday, December 12, 2011

Dr Catherine Macdonald, in collaboration with Andrew Schloeffel, Director of Sustainable Mining at the Department of Resources, Energy & Tourism (DRET) in Canberra (Australia) has recently written and released a handbook on Social Responsibility in the Mining and Metals Sector in Developing Countries. 

Input to the publication was also given by other industry participants in Australia, including Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton, Palladin Energy and Newcrest. 

The Handbook, which outlines how best to gain and maintain a social licence to operate, was well-received when launched at the recent Commonwealth Heads Of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Perth.

A copy of the handbook is available by clicking this link.
