Sustainability Reporting in the Mining Industry: Revealing or Hiding Conflicts? The Case of Bajo de la Alumbrera in Argentina

Colección: Ecología y Medioambiente
2014

Sustainability reporting under the GRI framework has emerged as a new institution seeking to provide transparency but sometimes sustainability reports seem to hide more than they reveal. This book addresses the case of Bajo de la Alumbrera mine in Argentina and its sustainability report from 2009.


All large-scale mining operations create noteworthy impacts at the local scale and many become sources of manifold socio-environmental conflicts around the world. Reporting under the GRI framework has emerged as a new institution seeking to provide transparency into the mining business but sometimes sustainability reports seem to hide more than they reveal, particularly related to critical arguments. This book addresses the case of Bajo de la Alumbrera, an open cut mine in Argentina and its sustainability report from 2009. It argues that if mining operations are to become an honest driver of sustainable development, reporting and stakeholder engagement practices need to improve by further consideration of critical stakeholders' arguments and by implementing more trade-offs between profits and the socio-environmental conflictive issues described by them.
