Description

Africa's subsoil is rich in hydrocarbons, precious and base metals, and rare metals that are particularly strategic for the global transition to a low-carbon economy. In this context, the continent's beautiful, serious, and pressing challenge is to ensure that the exploitation of its immense natural resources takes place in compliance with the best international standards in terms of sustainable development and transparent management. Then, the wealth created can contribute to the significant improvement of living conditions for the populations of the host countries, while ensuring the attractiveness and competitiveness vis-à-vis other major mining regions. The mining industry obviously has a central role to play in this dynamic.

Balancing the interests of varying stakeholders and shareholders, including those often seen at odds like profitability and environmental and social responsibility, Unlocking Our Shared Value proposes a sustainable vision for the future of the extractives industry in West Africa. Targeted at an audience of corporate professionals and academics, this text thoroughly examines the diverse concerns and factors at play in responsible mining and corporate practice.

For corporate executives, operational managers, and sustainability practitioners, this book will provide useful tools, strategies, best practices, and a roadmap to build, strengthen or realign the sustainability journey of their organizations, while helping investors have the whole picture of the risks and opportunities related to sustainability during their investment decisions. Therefore, this work will set a new level of corporate sustainability strategies within the extractive sector in West Africa and around the world.
