CSR and the mining industry

By

We recognize the important role of the mining industry in economic growth and development. However, the economic potential of mining has not been maximized due to environmental damage brought about by unacceptable mining practices. Thus, many communities in different economies in the Apec region have resisted the setting up of mining operations in their areas. The challenge, therefore, lies in finding ways to balance the benefits among the different mining stakeholders.
