TIA is seeking a consultant to analyse corruption and governance risks in the Australian mining industry in the context of the energy transition, identifying challenges and opportunities to strengthen Australia’s mining governance framework.

As TI’s Centre of Expertise on mining, TI Australia has led the Accountable Mining Programme (AMP) for the global TI movement since 2016. Through this programme, TI national chapters across 6 continents have identified and assessed corruption risks at different stages of the mining value chain, using our bespoke business integrity tools. We work collaboratively with governments, companies, civil society organisations and communities in more than 20 countries.

As part of this work, AMP is currently developing its energy transition workstream in collaboration with the other workstreams, particularly on the project Raising Company Standards and Ambition on Business Integrity in the Mining Sector. The energy transition is expected to drive a strong demand for minerals. While technology choices and improvements, material substitution, and recycling rates will shape demand for individual minerals, any lower-carbon pathway will result in an overall increase in demand for minerals.

ABOUT THE ROLE

The overall objective of the consultancy is to analyse corruption and governance risks in the Australian mining industry in the context of the energy transition. In particular, this will include an analysis of the Australian government’s recent Critical Minerals Strategy, as well as similar initiatives at the State level to identify challenges and opportunities to strengthen Australia’s mining governance framework.

THE CONSULTANT IS EXPECTED TO DELIVER:

  • A Methodological framework outlining approach, timeline and focus to conduct an in-depth analysis of the sector. The brief statement provided in the application will be used as a basis for this deliverable and will be further refined in consultation with TIA Staff.
  • A policy brief including an evaluation of the corruption and governance risks in the Australian mining industry associated to the energy transition and including an analysis of the Australian government’s recent Critical Minerals Strategy, along with policy recommendations to strengthen the sector governance.
Closing Date: Dec 15, 2023
