Business human rights issues for mining pursuits


Business human rights issues for mining pursuits

A webinar jointly presented by the IBA Business Human Rights Committee, IBA Mining Law Committee and IBA Public Law Committee, supported by The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation (RMMLF), the Columbia Centre on Sustainable Investment

11 FEB 2021 1630 - 1830 GMT

Business human rights is an important topic for the international mining, investment and human rights communities. In addition to receiving considerable attention by representatives of the mining, investment, governmental agencies and non-governmental organisations, it is useful as a vehicle for addressing environmental and susteinability issues as well as the relationships of mining enterprises with individual communities and the countries in which they are pursued.

This webinar will cover topics such as business human rights frameworks; advising the mining industry on business human rights; the importance of human rights to the financing and investment communities; and issues on the ground relating to business human rights and the mining sector.

Download here the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and NCPs, provided by the Australian National Contact Point Independent Examiner, which will be referred to during this webinar.
