Mining companies can have differing reactions to the imposition of environmental approvals regulation. Reactions range on a continuum from “inactive”, through to “interactive”. This article reports on a survey of senior environment managers in Toronto-based mining companies, making up 80% of mining sector market capitalization on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
This exploratory research indicates that 70% of interviewed executives perceive their companies to have either a proactive or an interactive approach to environmental approvals regulation. There appear to be five possible determinants of these reactions: organizational learning; types of regulation; influence of stakeholders; jurisdictional culture; and corporate culture.
