Emerging forms of Corporate and Industry Governance in the Australian Mining Industry

In recent years the Australian mining industry, in line with trends internationally, has been subjected to an increasing level of external control and scrutiny. The industry has responded to this changing environment by adopting a range of self-regulatory mechanisms at the industry and firm level that are broadly directed towards improving corporate social and environmental performance. This paper describes the new forms of corporate and industry governance that are emerging within the industry, and assesses the impact, effectiveness and likely durability of these measures.
