Sustainability in the mining sector: current status and future trends

The report examines the context and state of sustainability reporting in the large-scale mining sector, with a specific focus on what governments have done to enhance the transparency of the sector. Among findings of the report are the growing demand for more detailed disclosures at the mine-site level and the need for increased government involvement and guidance (such as on national SDG priorities) that can inform the context of sustainability disclosures of mining companies and make them more meaningful for stakeholders. There has not been much direct action by governments when it comes to enhancing sustainability disclosures of mining companies with some exceptions, including South Africa and Canada.
