For mining to fully benefit the Australian community and have a softer impact on our environment, its operations must be transparent and accountable.
We are working with the mining industry, government representatives and civil society organisations to reduce corruption risks.
Our work focuses on the very start of the mining value chain: the process of awarding mining permits. By ensuring mining permits are awarded in a way that is transparent and accountable, we better ensure the rest of the mining project operates with integrity.
Our research sheds light on how the process works in Queensland and Western Australia. We are working with mining companies, government representatives and civil society organisations to ensure decisions about mining approvals are transparent and accountable.
Transparency International Australia is part of global network of Transparency International Chapters working to improve transparency in the process of awarding mining permits.
