Mapping Mining to the SDGs: An Atlas
Who’s behind it? – World Economic Forum, SDSN, UNDP, Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment
How can it help? – This study, which was finalized in July 2016, draws linkages between the mining industry and the SDGs. It dedicates a chapter to each of the SDGs focusing on the contribution the mining industry can make to that goal and identifying opportunities for how mining companies can collaborate with other stakeholders and leverage resources to address the goals. Each chapter also includes case studies from which to draw in building innovative, systematic and sustained collaborative efforts. The Atlas is based on desktop research and interviews with over 60 global experts from industry, civil society, governments, academia, international organizations and financial institutions. A useful resource in terms of enhancing awareness of SDG-related risks and opportunities faced by the mining sector, and a strong springboard for wider discussion.
