Changing the game: Communication and sustainability in the mining industry

Co-authored by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) a member of the World Bank Group, the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) and Brunswick’s Energy and Resources team.

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) and Brunswick Group work with senior communications professionals in the mining industry in a variety of ways. Each organization has noticed an increased focus on the need for mining companies to effectively communicate with stakeholders and decided to collaborate to develop a better understanding of how communications is used to support business outcomes and sustainability efforts.

The insights in this report are drawn from conversations with industry leaders and practitioners as well as the first-hand experience of IFC and Brunswick Group advising on a variety of situations from new mine development to mergers and acquisitions. The publication does not aim to be exhaustive, but the trends and practical examples identified in the report may be instructive to communications professionals and others in the mining industry.
