An important Component of a Strong Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program
Mining companies have historically done well on following and reporting on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Principles, namely:
· Implementing and maintaining a sound system of corporate governance;
· Implementing risk management strategies based on valid data and sound science;
· Seeking continual improvement of their health and safety as well as environmental performance;
· Contributing to the social, economic and institutional development of the communities in which they operate; and
· Implementing effective and transparent engagement, communication and independently verified reporting arrangement with all stakeholders.
An important element of a sound CSR program that is often over looked is the integration of sustainable development considerations within the corporate decision-making process. This presentation is a case study on how establishing a Micro-Business program can greatly augment any CSR framework and why these programs can long survive the cessation of mining operations.
