Eurosif partnered with GES Investment Services for the Extractives sector report.
Research highlights and recommendations for companies and shareholders include:
- According to Forbes Magazine, in 2009, sales from the world’s top five listed mining companies were about €147 billion, whilst the top five oil & gas producers sold product worth nearly €1 trillion
- Extractives companies are increasingly operating in areas of high environmental and social sensitivity which increases the likelihood of being exposed to corruption practices and to regimes that may not share extractive revenues fairly among their populations.
- Extractive companies that systematically address and manage environmental issues early in project lifecycles will reduce their physical impacts, rehabilitation and legacy costs.
