Who gets the right to mine, and how?
Over 20 Transparency International Chapters, from some of the world’s most resource-rich countries, have come together to shine a light on how mining deals are made.
By focusing our spotlight on the start of the value chain we are working to prevent corruption before ground is even broken.
We are collaborating with an ever-growing network of global anti-corruption initiatives. We are working with governments, companies and communities who want to fix the flaws in the way mining permits are granted, flaws that leave the whole mining operation vulnerable to corruption.
Together, we are building coalitions against corruption, because we need to work together to create a fairer process for all.
Australia holds itself out as a world-class destination for mining companies. But do we really know who is coming here to mine?
This timeline shows the progress of the Accountable Mining Program in Australia, the collaboration with our diverse range of stakeholders, and events that have showcased our work.
CrTo effectively combat corruption, supporting women’s voice and agency is critical. Women need to have a seat at the table and be part of decisions about mining projects.
Our new blog series
Our blog series features developments in four countries where TI chapters are actively working to have their governments introduce rigorous beneficial ownership and integrity due diligence as part of the licensing process.
Our research examines where, how and under what conditions corruption occurs when mining permits are granted.
Our Global Report is filled with case studies from around the world, and the MACRA Tool details how users can explore corruption loopholes in their own countries. These publications are available in English, French and Spanish.
