Webinar: The impact of VSIs in mining
Speakers: Laura Turley and Matthew Wenban-Smith, Associates, IISD
Date: December 5, 2018
Description: 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, that took place December 5 2018, highlights the emergence and uptake of Voluntary Sustainability Initiatives (VSIs) in the mining sector and discussed the potential impact they could have in contributing to the design of public policy for meeting sustainable development goals.
