CIM's Environmental and Social Responsibility Society is supporting a research project being undertaken by the University of British Columbia examining stakeholder engagement strategies for mine design. The objective is to assess which engagement strategies yield mutually beneficial outcomes for companies, governments and communities. The findings will be used to develop a matrix of leading practice approaches for stakeholder engagement during mine development, and a screening protocol for use in planning and undertaking community engagement.
A key aspect of the research is an online survey of exploration and mining industry personnel to benchmark applied approaches to stakeholder and community engagement. The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete and findings of the research will be shared with ESRS members.
The survey closes on June 7th, so please do not wait to complete your entry! You can access the survey at this link:
The lead researcher, Jocelyn Fraser, is also chairing a new ESRS committee on stakeholder engagement. If you would like to join the committee, or have any questions on the research project, please contact her:
