The Global Supply of Critical Materials:  Assessing and Tracking Critical Mineral Commodities
No country in the world produces all of the mineral resources necessary for modern society. International trade plays a critical role in providing these raw materials, forming a global network of production, export, import, and use. This network must continuously adapt to national and international developments in science, technology, politics, and economics. As a result, information on the global flow of raw materials plays a fundamental role in improving national and international resilience to potential supply disruptions and market changes. This is the first presentation from the AGI Critical Issues webinar, "Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials". This webinar focuses on U.S. and European Union (EU) efforts to gather information and develop tools that can be used to ensure a secure national and global supply of mineral resources; identify and quantify vulnerabilities in this supply; and stimulate national and international co-operation, education and outreach, and innovation in the development, recycling, and substitution of key mineral resources. Our speakers include: Nedal Nassar, Chief, Materials Flow Analysis Section, National Minerals Information Center, U.S. Geological Survey Vitor Correia, President, European Federation of Geologists, and co-ordinator of the EU’s INTRAW project This webinar is co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union, American Institute of Professional Geologists, Australian Institute of Geoscientists, European Federation of Geologists, Geological Society of Africa, Geological Society of London, Geoscience Information Society, Mineralogical Society of America, and Society of Economic Geologists, with media partnership from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Sustainalytics CEO Michael Jantzi on Tracking ESG Performance - CSR Report
Visit http://3blmedia.com/theCSRfeed for the latest sustainability and CSR headlines. Sustainalytics is a global company and we track the environmental, social and governance performance of companies around the world. So our job is to determine what the environmental and social footprint of companies is and highlight that for investors, both individual investors and pension plans. The most important tool we have are our analysts and we have got about 60 or 70 analysts around the world, and you know I describe them as being a cross between a very traditional financial analyst using all of the tools that a financial analyst uses. But you cross a financial analyst with a private detective or an investigative journalist and that's what you have a Sustainalytics. So they are not just looking at the corporate information, they are talking to governments, they are talking to NGOs, they are talking to unions, they are talking to indigenous people, the broad range and you know it's like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, and you are putting those pieces together. So it's not just what the company says it's doing in the environmental and social area, we are actually measuring what they are doing, the performance of that company. So really people that are most important leverage point for looking what companies are doing. The history of Sustainalytics goes back 20 years, so there have been a couple of decades of invention. So the foundation of what we do is an analytical framework and we look at core indicators in the environmental, social and governance areas. And again what we try to do is on a sector basis identify right environmental and social issues a company deals with in a particular sector on a day to day basis, what risks does that company face in its ordinary business on the environmental and social front, and then we try to measure how they are going about minimizing those risks. So for an oil and gas obviously you have got large environmental challenges, like climate change and water usage and so on. Well first of all do the companies know about those risks? If they know about them what are they doing to mitigate or minimize those risks and that's really where Sustainalytics comes in measuring the gap between understanding and action.

The Importance of Community Relations to the Mining Sector
Visit http://3blmedia.com/theCSRfeed for the latest sustainability and CSR headlines. Interview with Irene Sosa, Senior Analyst, on Sustainalytics. Part 2. Transcript: we think that the risks for community relations are going to be higher in the future. For one thing, the reserves are becoming scarce for pretty much most of the commodities. So companies are going to have to start getting into what they call higher risk areas, which means countries with poor human rights records or regions where there are indigenous communities that have never had contact with mining companies before. So some areas that pose more challenges, they will have to start to get into those areas because there is demand for the metals. At the same time, you have globalization, and the communities are getting more organized and launching lawsuits or complaints before the OECD. And there is also an increased recognition of the rights of certain groups, like indigenous groups, with the 2007 UN declaration, the Rights of Indigenous People and some more recent discussion about the Right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent. So the bar is raising, and the communities are more connected, and the companies are getting into higher risk areas. And also, because of population growth, there would be more competition over land resources and water in the future. So all these things will make community relations more important. There are more communities negotiating, what we call, Impact Benefit Agreements with indigenous communities negotiating. It was called Impact and Benefit Agreements with mining companies. So those are enforceable formal agreements between a mining company and the community, and they commit the company to provide jobs, business opportunities, even training so that they can work at the mine and seize those business opportunities, and in some cases, even royalty sharing or lump sum payments for projects that are going to take place on indigenous land. Now as I said, that's the case mostly in Australia and in Canada because there is -- particularly in the territories that have a high number of original people or indigenous people, and there is either a legal or a de facto requirement that companies have to negotiate that. So for example, if you go to Canada, in Nunavut, when you want to develop a mine in Nunavut, you have to negotiate an Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreement. It's a law. In other places, like Northwest Territories, it's not a legal requirement; however, you pretty much have to have them on board if you want to develop a mine there. So there is a de facto expectation. And in Australia, same thing, like there are places where this is pretty common and companies are expected to enter into those agreements. Now you have those same companies going to Peru, for example, who are reluctant to get into similar formal agreements with local communities, and I raise Peru for example because right now it's a hotspot for tensions between mining companies and communities. So I think we still have a long way to go in terms of implementing those best practices. But for sure, like those agreements, if you had thought of them 40 years ago, we would have made some progress there. And the communities can benefit significantly from those agreements.

Sustainalytics CEO Michael Jantzi on the Return on Responsible Investing - CSR Report
Visit http://3blmedia.com/theCSRfeed for the latest sustainability and CSR headlines. In the investment game nobody can assure anybody of anything especially in these times, but I mean you are absolutely right and I think you have identified the most enduring myth with responsible investment or social responsible investment that if you want to invest on the one hand for an environmental or social purpose that's fine but you are not going to make money, because that's on the entire other end of the spectrum. And I have spent the last 20 years telling people that they are not on opposite ends of the spectrum. Social environmental responsibility and financial return are sitting shoulder to shoulder with one another. And the interesting thing is think about how the world has changed today, and now you see the largest, more sophisticated investors in the world integrating environmental and social issues into their investment process, because they believe it makes them smarter investors. How can we invest in a mining company that's operating in multiple countries around the world without understanding the geopolitical realities of those markets? How can a mining company ignore the communities in which they operate? They depend on that license to operate in those communities. How can an oil and gas company operate in a medium to longer term environment, without understanding the impacts it's having in the climate change debate or without dealing with health and safety issues? Investors now understand that the world has changed and these things that 10 years ago, 15 years ago, used to be thought of outside of the financial rubric are now core business decision making and think of it as an iceberg and if you think of a company is an iceberg my argument is that if you are only looking at the traditional financial ratios that investment managers have used for decades you are only seeing the tip of the iceberg, that part that's above the surface of the water. Today 75% of the value of that company isn't immediately evident, it sits below the surface. And investment managers whether their pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, mutual fund managers or individual stock brokers need a better sonar to really understand the companies that they are investing in. And we think that in evaluation of an environmental and social aspects of business helps in form that decision a whole lot better.

Responsible Investing Workshop: Learn the Basics of SRI
Sustainable and Responsible Investing (SRI) is a rapidly growing investing space. Industry expert Sara E. Murphy presents the history, drivers, and trends in this industry, with examples, anecdotes, and suggestions for learner engagement. Visit http://greenleadersdc.com to learn more. Connect with GreenLeaders DC: FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/greenleadersdc Twitter: https://twitter.com/greenleadersdc LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/greenleaders-dc?trk=top_nav_home YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvTK0xzVoiJfPzpG6rDMsZQ Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/u/1/105935346110277226775/about We had a great session and discussion on sustainable and responsible investment. Workshop leader Sara E. Murphy took us through the background and current trends in the space, and presented some of the key issues that would be relevant to various levels of students (beginning vs. advanced/graduate levels), and what specific points could help make the financial case for pursuing sustainable business paths. Some key points included: Students' roles as consumers and how that impacts companies' decisions to "go green" The importance of showing results and accountability (whether in investing or learning) The role of moral questions when discussing sustainable investing concepts (recommended or not?) Using financial concepts and examples to make a connection with students History of Responsible Investing It began as a religious movement using an exclusionary process that eliminated investment that did not fit with the investor’s values. SRI has now evolved into an engine for seeking out investment opportunities. SRI is currently a powerful value-adding investment strategy if managed correctly SRI: A Victim of its own success? 15 years ago, analysis was easy. Then SRI became the world’s most quickly growing asset class. Many companies want to wear the responsible investing mantle. This makes the analyst’s job a nightmare. SRI has suffered some of the same issues as the organic food label, as standards and claims are difficult to verify with certainty. State of Responsible Investing Today To get a clear sense of what role SRI plays in the broader market and for individuals, it’s helpful to consider the basic premise of investing. Investment, in the purest sense of the word, is the act of buying a piece of a company to promote its growth over time. Long­-term investment necessarily requires sustainability, in the purest sense of that word. It’s important to ask basic questions to put metrics and data in context. Managing Risk Climate Change: You may not think it’s a risk, but the SEC now requires disclosure in annual filings. Other risks include: Unburnable Carbon & Stranded Assets affect coal, oil, and gas companies Social License to Operate affect mining, forestry, and other extractive companies Reputation Risk, Supply chain ignorance, and brand damage affects all companies Seizing Opportunity The agricultural and energy impacts of climate change converge to bolster new industries such as Carbon Capture & Storage, Energy Efficiency, and Future Grid. Example: Rio Tinto’s now has enhanced Social License to Operate built on community consultation, an unexpected opportunity. Food for Thought (or Indigestion) Some of the most egregious abuses barely register in stock prices. Examples include Chevron and the Ecuadorian disgrace, Shell and the wasting of the Niger River Delta, and Monsanto and the war on small farmers. Discussion question: If it doesn’t hurt the stock price, does it matter? The Big $6 Million Question Does SRI create outperformance? It can, and it’s been demonstrated. But it is incredibly difficult to evaluate, as no two approaches are quite alike. Generally, companies that report on sustainability slightly outperform, but it is a tall order to isolate any single variable to explain stock price movement. Other Important SRI Issues Proxy voting, shareholder resolutions, and activist investors Top-down vs. bottom-up analysis Data providers, checklists, and the role of metrics

Mining in Colombia and Latin America: Panel 4: Due diligence and accountability - Shanta Martin
12-11-12 Human Rights Consortium http://www.sas.ac.uk/ http://events.sas.ac.uk/isa/events/view/12859/Mining+in+Colombia+and+Latin+America%3A+will+the+UN+Guiding+Principles+on+Business+and+Human+Rights+improve+accountability%3F Mining in Colombia and Latin America: will the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights improve accountability? Panel 4: Due diligence and accountability in practice This panel will examine where and how changes can be made to improve 'due diligence.' It will assess how the due diligence requirements of the Guiding Principles can address methods of company reporting and prior consultation and rebalance the relationship between profit and the rights of people, local communities and the environment. The discussion will take into account judicial and non-judicial mechanisms for communities wishing to hold companies to account for their behaviour in third countries in order to address the remedy principle, looking especially at Colombia as an example of business investing in areas of conflict. Shanta Martin - Solicitor, Leigh Day and Co, previously Head of Business and Human Rights at Amnesty International The UK will launch its initial strategy on implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in September 2012 and this conference will provide an opportunity to discuss and debate this strategy, to engage with the UK government on how it can best fulfil its commitment to 'Protect, Respect and Remedy', and with corporations on their ideas for the implementation of responsible mining practices and due diligence requirements. Issues of natural resource governance are invariably at the centre of development and human rights debates as the extractive sector represents a growing part of Latin American economies. In Colombia, the government has identified the mining and energy sector as a key component of its current National Development Plan and one of the 'backbones of the Colombian economy'. What changes can be made to take into account the voices of local indigenous, afro-Colombian and campesino communities? What are the challenges for companies investing in countries with poor human rights records and how are they meeting them? How is human rights due diligence seen from a Southern perspective? What difference could the UN Guiding Principles make and what concrete actions should governments be taking to improve the mining industry's environmental and social performance? Tackling these questions will be experts from a range of disciplines and key public bodies, including scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers, as well as representatives from the legal sector and mining industry. We are pleased to welcome indigenous and campesino community leaders from Colombia, including Embera and Awá indigenous peoples, to share the impact mining is having on their communities.

Alison Taylor – Sustainability and the Future of Business Ethics
Large corporations have traditionally treated business ethics as primarily an issue of legal compliance, while sustainability teams focus on philanthropy, environmental responsibility, and reporting. However, public trust in business is at an historic low, and companies are increasingly asked to respond to stakeholder concerns over issues such as inequality, transparency, corruption, human rights, and climate change. Taylor will examine current corporate approaches to these larger ethical questions, and propose some ideas for how they might evolve in future. Alison Taylor leads BSR’s energy and extractives practice and co-leads the sustainability management practice. She focuses on approaches to sustainability through risk management, strategy, stakeholder engagement, transparency, ethics and governance, and organizational change. Previously, Taylor was a senior managing director at Control Risks, where she helped companies operate with integrity, particularly in high-risk environments. She has also worked at Transparency International, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and IHS Global Insight. Taylor holds an MA in international relations from the University of Chicago, an MA in organizational psychology from Columbia University, and a BA in modern history from Balliol College, Oxford University.

Corporate Social Responsibility - Vale Canada
At Vale's Canadian operations we believe that the mines we dig are more than just holes in the ground. They're the foundation of something bigger, a lasting partnership that we help build with the communities we and our 7000 Canadian employees call home. We've always believed it's important to put as much back into our communities as what we take out of the ground. The deeper we dig down, the more broadly we extend our reach. Here are just a few of the Corporate Social Responsibility efforts we are committed to.

Business Opportunities in Vietnam - Cơ hội kinh doanh tại Việt Nam
www.stalker.vn - Natural Ground Roasted Coffee - Cà phê rang xay nguyên chất Vietnam's economic freedom score is 51, making its economy the 140th freest in the 2013 Index. Its score is 0.3 point worse than last year, with declines in monetary freedom, labor freedom, and trade freedom overshadowing improvements in control of government spending, business freedom, and freedom from corruption. Vietnam is ranked 30th out of 41 countries in the Asia--Pacific region, and its overall score is lower than the world and regional averages. The Vietnamese economy has weathered the global economic downturn relatively well. Capitalizing on its measured integration into the global trade and investment system, the country has slowly been transforming itself into a more market-oriented economy. Reforms include partial privatization of state-owned enterprises, modernization of the trade regime, and increasing recognition of private property rights. The rule of law remains an issue, a remnant of decades of Communism. The court system is inefficient, and the protection of intellectual property has been a major area of contention in international trade negotiations. A lack of democratic governance and accountability continues to perpetuate systemic corruption. BACKGROUND The Socialist Republic of Vietnam continues to experience political repression and a lack of respect for basic human rights. Economic liberalization began in 1986 with its doi moi reforms, and Vietnam joined the World Trade Organization in 2007. In April 2012, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung affirmed his commitment to reforming the state sector, pushing for partial privatizations after support for state-owned enterprises largely backfired. The government is slowly liberalizing key economic sectors, including financial institutions, and is part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade negotiations. Vietnam's fast-growing economy is driven primarily by tourism and exports, but inflation is a problem, and the country has struggled to attract more investment in the absence of a transparent legal and regulatory system. RULE OF LAWVIEW METHODOLOGY Property Rights 15.0 Create a Graph using this measurement Freedom From Corruption 29.0 Create a Graph using this measurement The judicial system is not independent and lacks efficiency. Private property rights are not strongly respected, and resolution of disputes can take years. Infringement of intellectual property rights is common. Corruption is due in large part to a lack of transparency and media freedom, but systems for holding officials accountable for their actions are inadequate as well. Many companies report having to pay bribes for customs clearances. LIMITED GOVERNMENTVIEW METHODOLOGY Government Spending 72.4 Create a Graph using this measurement Fiscal Freedom 75.6 Create a Graph using this measurement The top income tax rate is 35 percent, and the top corporate tax rate is 25 percent. Other taxes include a value-added tax (VAT) and a property tax. The overall tax burden equals 24.3 percent of total domestic income. Government spending is equivalent to 30.3 percent of GDP. Deficits have been persistently high, but public debt has remained at around 38 percent of GDP. A huge stimulus package in 2009 has threatened fiscal health. REGULATORY EFFICIENCYVIEW METHODOLOGY Business Freedom 63.8 Create a Graph using this measurement Labor Freedom 65.5 Create a Graph using this measurement Monetary Freedom 65.3 Create a Graph using this measurement Despite ongoing reform efforts, the overall regulatory framework lacks efficiency. Although no minimum capital is required, starting a business still takes more than the world average of 30 days and seven procedures. Completing licensing requirements still takes more than 100 days. The labor market remains dominated by the public sector, but there is considerable informal labor activity. Inflation has spiked, damaging monetary stability. OPEN MARKETSVIEW METHODOLOGY Trade Freedom 78.6 Create a Graph using this measurement Investment Freedom 15.0 Create a Graph using this measurement Financial Freedom 30.0 Create a Graph using this measurement The trade-weighted average tariff rate is 5.7 percent, with some additional non-tariff barriers limiting more dynamic gains from trade. Despite a desire to attract more foreign investment, the investment regime lacks efficiency, and flows are severely hampered by various restrictions. The financial sector continues to expand, with capital markets evolving. Directed lending by state-owned commercial banks has been scaled back in recent years.

Transparency Counts
Government revenues from natural resources have often been criticised for being badly managed, veiled in secrecy and fraught with corruption. Over the past decade, this picture has been changing. A coalition of 50 countries and 50 of the largest oil, gas and mining companies is now working together with civil society to improve transparency in the management of natural resources. In 33 resource-rich countries, companies and governments have committed to publish what they pay and receive, through implementing the global standard that is the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative. Citizens in these countries can now find out how much their governments receive from their natural resources, and hold them to account.
