Two years ago, Newmont supported UQ’s Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM) to develop learning materials about the social performance aspects of the Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management (GISTM) – to help focus their internal conversations.
These materials were originally designed to support 2, 90 minute follow-up “live” Zoom sessions with 20 professionals prepared to think about the social performance aspects of the GISTM and work through scenarios during a respectful, multi-disciplinary conversation.
The “pre-work” for those sessions are available for other stakeholders to access freely. (Spanish and Portuguese translations coming soon).
We’re busy developing the next set of materials because these just scratch the surface. There’s much more interdisciplinary learning to do to reduce local-level disaster risk from tailings facilities in the global mining industry.
Explore these materials which delve into some of the social performance aspects of tailings management, including where social performance features in the GISTM).
