INSPIRING MINING FOR GOOD
We aspire to fundamentally change the extractive business model of the mining industry from insular and reactive, to an integrated and proactive development partner, delivering on economic, environmental and social shared purpose.
Building on the work done to date through the Kellogg Innovation Network (KIN), the Development Partner Institute (DPI) was established in 2016 to engage players across the mining ecosystem to build bridges amongst stakeholders and advance innovative thinking about the role of mining in society.
FROM EXTRACTION TO DEVELOPMENT
The world needs mining. It provides the building blocks of modern civilization. However mining needs to change. We have not lived up to the expectations of society and all of our stakeholders, including the environment.
DEVELOPMENT PARTNER FRAMEWORK
The Development Partner Framework (DPF) articulates our mindset of shared purpose that cultivates partnerships amongst the collective set of stakeholders including communities, businesses, employees, governments, local authorities, NGOs, development agencies and investors. It describes what is required for mining companies to secure, nurture and progressively revitalize their social license to operate.
