Certification schemes are one key means for civil society actors to hold companies to account and for companies to ensure that they are operating responsibly. But how effective are they at improving practices and delivering better environmental and social outcomes? This research project will investigate the potential role certification can play to improve standards for responsible mining. The project will review the objectives, focus, provisions, audit procedures, operation, and on-the-ground outcomes of proposed and existing mining certification schemes to develop practical resources and recommendations for improved effectiveness and application of certification schemes in mining.
