About My Work
Mining Shared Value (MSV), is an non-profit initiative of Engineers Without Borders Canada (EWB), works to inform and empower the global mining industry, governments and communities to increase local procurement in host countries. Rather than focus on one mine or one host community, we work to systemically change the entire sector so that local procurement increases. We provide the pressure and resources required to help the mining industry purchase more locally to create shared value between industry and host economies.

gold, diamonds, oil and natural gas, csr, governance and anti-corruption, investing, geology, environment, social accountability, human rights, contract and licensing, monitoring revenue collection, redistribution and sustainable development
