Mining a Mirage? Reassessing the shared-value paradigm in light of the technological advances in the mining sector

This study led by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) examined what impacts mining industry automation may have on local procurement and the creation of shared value more generally. The study shows the need for host country governments and mining companies to work together to reduce and mitigate potential adverse effects of automation in terms of reduced local procurement and linked employment.
