The article discusses how mining companies can create positive impacts for the government, private enterprise and society. Co-operation between the government and industry is possible via negotiated agreement when the government delivers initiatives. Companies may establish nonprofit organizations through which they direct initiatives. It is noted that by allocating roles and responsibilities among the partners and defining expectations from each other, tri-sector partnerships help build trust and confidence among the industry, government and societal organizations.
