BSR helped Freeport-McMoRan develop a new approach to engaging local communities, shifting from an emphasis on philanthropy to a participatory approach to investments that satisfies both the company’s and the community's needs.
By helping Twin Metals Minnesota engage early with a broad set of stakeholders for its development of an underground copper mine, BSR worked with the company to integrate stakeholder ideas into a more robust sustainability strategy for the company as a whole.
For the Papua New Guinea Liquefied Natural Gas Project, we helped ExxonMobil create sustainable economic development programs focused on workforce and supplier development and strategic community investments.
In the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where armed conflict has claimed more than 5.4 million lives over the past 15 years, militant groups controlling most of the region's mines use the trade in tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold as important sources of funding. At the same time, this trade—which feeds into complex supply chains for products ranging from cell phones and cutting tools to jet engines and jewelry—is an important source of income for a million people in the region.
