The economies of many countries depend on mining activities for revenue and employment, and consumers and other sectors rely on mining materials for growth and innovation. As a result, mining companies need to foster strong partnerships at local, national, and global levels to address critical social and environmental risks and realize benefits for business and communities.

BSR works with clients—from large multinationals to junior exploration companies—to improve social and environmental performance at both the operational and corporate levels. With global experience, we leverage our network of partners in government, civil society, and academia to complement our expertise and remain at the forefront of emerging trends and practices.
