Indigenous peoples and the extractive industries: evaluating ethical standards

International standards have evolved since the 1960s to protect the rights of indigenous peoples facing major energy and mining activities on their lands.  Businesses and investors are increasingly aware of the risks of failing to respect indigenous rights.  In a recent example, when the city of Seattle ended its contract with Wells Fargo in February 2017 in…
