Extractives

GoodCorporation has a large number of international clients operating in the highly challenging extractives sector. To help them manage their ethics and compliance risks, we have conducted assessments of anti-bribery systems, human rights programmes, code of conduct implementation and community project evaluation.

Many extractives projects involve the establishment of highly complex exploration sites involving multiple third parties as well as contractors and subcontractors. To ensure that robust standards of ethical conduct are firmly in place, we also work alongside our clients to help them manage operations using our Project Assessment Framework.

Managing the conduct of intermediaries can be both a logistical and ethical challenge in this sector. We support our clients in their ethical due diligence of intermediaries and in strengthening their ethics training programmes to help them manage the highly complex supply chains for which they are responsible.

For others, we review operations on a country-by-country basis, preparing annual management reports on the effectiveness of code of conduct implementation.

Much of our work in this sector has been undertaken internationally and includes assessing operations in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Far East and Australasia.
