Sept. 10, 2015: Miners to ‘do better’ than just follow laws
 

Mining companies will work on moving beyond compliance with laws and regulations in a bid to become more responsible partners of host communities and the government, an industry official said on Thursday.

Ronald Recidoro, executive director of the Chamber of Mines of the Philippines, said the aim was “not just to follow the law but to do better” given pressure from no less than President Rodrigo Duterte.

“We will fine-tune our Social Development Management Program (SDMP) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities to encompass not just environmental protection and social development, but also to address climate change resiliency and adaptation. This is an imperative,” Recidoro said.
