How Important is Community Relations for Mining Companies?
It's no secret that a successful community relations strategy can pay off for miners looking to forge and maintain good relationships with host communities. Miners' efforts are much improved in this respect, but expectations have also risen. Identifying behaviours to succeed in community relations is critical. Identifying new behaviours typically comes from assessing the most pressing challenges and focusing on the actions required to help surmount those challenges. It clarifies critical behaviours you need to reinforce, focus efforts on and set as high-priority goals. In this video, Megan McIver, Founder and President of Verona Communications Inc., talks about the community relations strategy that she finds most effective. She also talks about this in her article in the Northern Miner Global Mining Newspaper which is posted on the Verona Communications Inc. website: http://www.veronacommunicationsinc.com/publications-opinions.html

Bobby Banerjee: The politics of anti-corporate social movements
Full title: Histories of Oppression, Voices of Resistance: The Politics of Anti-Corporate Social Movements. Bobby Banerjee is Professor of Management and Director of Research in the School of Business, University of Western Sydney. This lecture was part of the "Sustainable Materialism Symposium" hosted by the Sydney Network on Climate Change and Society at The University of Sydney in November 2012. To find out more about the Sydney Network on Climate Change and Society visit sydney.edu.au/snccs Summary: In this seminar I discuss the rise of resistance movements against extractive industries. I analyze the case of an ongoing resistance movement against a proposed bauxite mine in India and show how market, state and civil society actors at local, national and international levels shape resistance movements against mining. I show how corporations deploy corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a weapon to counter-mobilize against resistance movements. I discuss the theoretical implications of the case for studying transnational and national anti-corporate movements.

EG Module 1 - Social impact of accounting
EG Module 1 - Social impact of accounting Many people view accounting as number crunching with limited or no impact beyond the bookkeeping of a company. This is a limited view of accounting as it fails to consider the impact that reported information would have on investors, creditors, trade unions and other stakeholders who would rely on the financial statements of the company. Accounting and accountants have the potential to have a major impact on society. For example, the failure of accountants to perform their roles effectively led to major corporate collapses such as Enron in the US and Parmalat in Italy. The major role of accounting is reporting. This can take a number of different forms such as annual financial statements, half-yearly and quarterly reporting. These reports provide information to stakeholders which in turn is pivotal in influencing their decision making capabilities. Stakeholders range from owners, management and investors to potential investors and other interested parties. So, for example, assume Ben is interested in purchasing shares in a mining company. Prior to purchasing shares, Ben would look at the annual financial statements and other reports that are available. These reports would provide vital information that would influence his decision to purchase the shares or not. Based on the reports available, Ben decides that the company is profitable and is a great long term investment. Now, let us assume the reporting which influenced Ben’s decision was accurate. In this case, Ben would be appropriately informed and his decision to buy the shares would have positive social consequences. In other words, the active social impact that accounting played in Ben’s decision would be a good one. In more technical terms, Ben, and other investors like him would be allocating their scarce resources in an appropriate way that will benefit them, the organisation, and the broader economy. Other groups linked to the company such as lenders or suppliers will also be making similar decisions about whether to transact with the company or not. If these decisions are linked to accurate information they will lend and sell wisely, and see growth in their own businesses. However, if the reports that Ben and the other stakeholders relied on when deciding to purchase shares were inaccurate or wrong, Ben and the other shareholders might lose part, or all of their investment. Lenders may not receive principal repayments, and suppliers may end up with bad debts instead of increased profits. Employees might lose their jobs and may not be paid out their full entitlements. Therefore, the reporting by accountants could have a positive social impact if it is correct or it could have a negative impact if incorrect. In order to prevent a negative social impact by inaccurate or poor reporting, accountants have to apply vast professional capabilities including technical and soft skills as well as extensive experience.

The Importance of Community Relations to the Mining Sector
Visit http://3blmedia.com/theCSRfeed for the latest sustainability and CSR headlines. Interview with Irene Sosa, Senior Analyst, on Sustainalytics. Part 2. Transcript: we think that the risks for community relations are going to be higher in the future. For one thing, the reserves are becoming scarce for pretty much most of the commodities. So companies are going to have to start getting into what they call higher risk areas, which means countries with poor human rights records or regions where there are indigenous communities that have never had contact with mining companies before. So some areas that pose more challenges, they will have to start to get into those areas because there is demand for the metals. At the same time, you have globalization, and the communities are getting more organized and launching lawsuits or complaints before the OECD. And there is also an increased recognition of the rights of certain groups, like indigenous groups, with the 2007 UN declaration, the Rights of Indigenous People and some more recent discussion about the Right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent. So the bar is raising, and the communities are more connected, and the companies are getting into higher risk areas. And also, because of population growth, there would be more competition over land resources and water in the future. So all these things will make community relations more important. There are more communities negotiating, what we call, Impact Benefit Agreements with indigenous communities negotiating. It was called Impact and Benefit Agreements with mining companies. So those are enforceable formal agreements between a mining company and the community, and they commit the company to provide jobs, business opportunities, even training so that they can work at the mine and seize those business opportunities, and in some cases, even royalty sharing or lump sum payments for projects that are going to take place on indigenous land. Now as I said, that's the case mostly in Australia and in Canada because there is -- particularly in the territories that have a high number of original people or indigenous people, and there is either a legal or a de facto requirement that companies have to negotiate that. So for example, if you go to Canada, in Nunavut, when you want to develop a mine in Nunavut, you have to negotiate an Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreement. It's a law. In other places, like Northwest Territories, it's not a legal requirement; however, you pretty much have to have them on board if you want to develop a mine there. So there is a de facto expectation. And in Australia, same thing, like there are places where this is pretty common and companies are expected to enter into those agreements. Now you have those same companies going to Peru, for example, who are reluctant to get into similar formal agreements with local communities, and I raise Peru for example because right now it's a hotspot for tensions between mining companies and communities. So I think we still have a long way to go in terms of implementing those best practices. But for sure, like those agreements, if you had thought of them 40 years ago, we would have made some progress there. And the communities can benefit significantly from those agreements.

For more information on state or territory policies or initiatives, please email Supply Nation at [email protected] The policy applies to government buyers, any organisation competing to win large government contracts and Indigenous businesses and focuses on three key areas to increase procurement from Indigenous owned businesses. In order to influence private businesses to increase their engagement with the Indigenous community, the mandatory minimum requirements for Indigenous participation apply to all new contracts delivered in Australia that are valued at $7.5 million (GST inclusive) or more, where more than half of the value of the contract is being spent in one or more of the following industry sectors: Building, construction and maintenance services Transportation, storage and mail services Education and training services Industrial cleaning services Farming and fishing and forestry and wildlife contracting services Editorial and design and graphic and fine art services Travel and food and lodging and entertainment services Politics and civic affairs services Currently there are estimated to be 150 such contracts per year. Organisations that win these contracts will be required to either: Achieve an average of 4 per cent Indigenous employment and/or supplier use over the term of the contract; or Achieve an average of 3 per cent Indigenous employment and/or supplier use across their organisation over the term of the contract
