The World Economic Forum , United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), and the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) have been working together to build a shared understanding of how the mining industry can most effectively contribute to the SDGs.

The findings will be published in a draft report, Mapping Mining to the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas, which will be available shortly for public consultation.

The draft report consists of a collection of maps to guide mining companies in navigating where their products and activities – from exploration, through mining itself, to end products and eventually mine closure – can help the world achieve the SDGs. At the same time, the partners hope to support governments, civil society and other stakeholders identify the opportunities for shared action and partnership with the sector.
