Launch of the Responsible Mining Index

Organised in partnership with the Responsible Mining Foundation

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

How do we translate the full potential of minerals and metals mining to benefit the economies, improve the lives of people and respect the environments of producing countries, particularly in some of the world’s poorest regions? How well, or badly, are mining companies currently performing on economic development, environmental, social and governance issues? This event presents and debates the findings of the first Responsible Mining Index, which assesses the policies and practices of 30 large-scale mining companies. 


  • Gilles Carbonnier, Professor of Development Economics, The Graduate Institute, Geneva
  • Marie-Gabrielle Ineichen-Fleisch, Secretary of State for Economic Affairs for the Government of Switzerland
  • A representative of the Government of The Netherlands

Presentation of the 2018 Responsible Mining Index:

Panel discussion on the findings of the 2018 Index and implications and opportunities for industry and governments

An aperitif will be served before the event at 17:45.
