Over the last few years, key players in the Australian and international mining industry have been working to improve the social performance of the industry and raise its public standing. In this paper I give the background to these changes, describe the various forms of self-regulation now being utilised within the sector and assess the impact and effectiveness of these measures. The final section identifies the main challenges now confronting the industry and suggests some possible ways forward.
