Webinar: Voluntary Sustainability Initiatives on Mining

From IISD:

Many mineral-rich developing countries rely on the mining sector as an engine for this economic development. Ensuring mining is socially and environmentally sound, and contributes to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), requires extra efforts from policy-makers and the private sector alike.

Our webinar, taking place December 5 at 9:00 a.m. ET / 3:00 p.m. CET, highlights the emergence and uptake of Voluntary Sustainability Initiatives (VSIs) in the mining sector and will discuss the potential impact they could have in contributing to the design of public policy for meeting sustainable development goals.

The webinar will also provide an opportunity for participants to discuss and learn more on the findings of the CARE analysis for some of the VSIs mining initiatives studied, which explores their coverage, assurance, responsiveness and engagement with regards to sustainability issues.
