VIDEO: Session 2: Practicing Sustainability in Natural Resource Industries
Martz Winter Symposium (1st: 2014: Boulder, Colo.)
This session will address the growing attention to sustainability in traditional natural resources industries and the increasing recognition of the considerable challenges facing efforts to operationalize this broad concept in the context of resource extraction and development. Specific topics will include the changing role of chief sustainability officers, the trends in industry compliance efforts, and the emerging rating systems for sustainability "performance" by companies. It will also discuss the role of different stakeholders and the challenges of new models of governance (that is, different from traditional command-and-control regulation) that enable the sustainability norm to be internalized by industry participants and guided by emerging collaborative governance initiatives.
11:15 p.m. - 12:45 p.m.
