Tuesday 25 June, 2013, 2-3pm London time

Sustainability standards are a trusted sustainability tool in sectors such as agriculture, fishing and forestry, but in recent years we have seen a rapid growth in the development of standards for other types of production, extractives in particular. In this webinar we explored the contributions that standards can make to improve social and environmental performance in the extractives sector and the approaches that have been taken to developing standards for oil, gas, minerals, mining, and so forth. Presentations from standard-setters in the ISEAL Community provided insight into their efforts to address social and environmental issues, their engagement with industry and other key stakeholders, and what needs to happen to make improved practices feasible and scalable.
