Non-government organisations in a sustainable relationship for sustainable mining?: The Australian NGO perspective on what happened after the MMSD initiative

Third Sector Review
Volume 18 Issue 1 (2012)

Abstract: The Mining, Minerals and Sustainable Development (MMSD) initiative was full of promise for a new era. It was envisaged that the participation of multiple stakeholders in decisions about the sustainable use of the earth's resources would help design a sustainable future for an industry that was seen as the most challenging to global ecological sustainability. Drawing on a previously developed model of non-government organisation/corporate engagement and local Australian research assessing the outcomes of the MMSD, this paper explores the idea of sustainability in non-government organisation/corporate engagement in mining. It raises key questions about the sustainability of relationships between stakeholders that have such contrasting views of what environmental sustainability is and how it can be achieved.
