Mining and Corporate Social Responsibility: Scotbar Proprietary Limited
David T.A. Wesley, Belinda Wade, Sheila Puffer

Product Number: 9B18M099
Publication Date: 07/05/2018
Length: 13 pages (10 pages of text)

Scotbar Proprietary Limited (Scotbar) in Queensland, Australia, developed a process to convert sandstone to sand, a technique that large multinational mining companies failed to perfect. After spending years and millions of dollars on research, Scotbar appeared to have developed a process to produce construction sand, although more expensive than natural sand. Scotbar decided not to patent its process in hopes that more companies would adopt it and thereby reduce the harmful impact of mining on the environment. Was Scotbar’s approach to sustainability through innovation an effective response to the environmental legacy of more traditional mining processes? Was the company’s approach to intellectual property appropriate in this context?
