Just published - ESIA and SEA for responsible mining - 8 pager

25 September 2019

How can ESIA (environmental and social impact assessment) and SEA (strategic environmental assessment) enhance the mining sector’s contribution to sustainable development? In which way can negative consequences be reduced or avoided? And what are the benefits for companies and governments? These and other questions are tackled in our new Views & Experiences case on the mining sector. In almost all countries ESIA is regulated by law and the implementation of SEA is growing fast. That is why the question is not whether an ESIA /SEA should be carried out, but how it should be done to really be an added value. For people, for planet and for profit.
