Report of the Workshop on Finance, Mining and Sustainability: Exploring Sound Investment Decision Processes - Mining, Minerals and Sustainable Development No. 213

The second in a series of Financing, Mining and Sustainability workshops explored the role of financial institutions in funding mining/minerals projects. Co-hosted by MMSD, UNEP and the World Bank, it was based on the following five themes: • Sustainability performance in mining and its influence on the bottom line; • Understanding, measuring and ensuring performance of sustainability in mining; • Reputational issues and stakeholder perspectives; • Moving ahead: what the finance sector needs from the mining industry; • Framing a plan of action: effective sustainability reporting to meet the needs of the financial community. The workshop took the form of plenary presentations, followed by breakout groups which discussed recommendations for next steps, and the specific roles MMSD, UNEP and the World Bank should take in the follow-up.
