Research Webinar Series: No. 5 - How to improve the effectiveness of sustainability certification standards

This webinar, as part of the Research Webinar Series, presents research on how sustainability certification schemes can help deliver positive outcomes in the mining and minerals sector.

Sustainability certification schemes and standards are one key means for civil society actors to hold mineral companies and governments to account and for companies and governments to demonstrate that they are operating responsibly. This webinar shares research exploring the potential role these initiatives can play to effectively deliver positive outcomes and foster local development.
