This webinar delved into how countries can adapt their mining tax policies to respond to climate change, automation, and the global tax justice movement. The event also explored the risks and opportunities these trends present for the mining sector.
Key discussion questions included:
Are current financial benefit-sharing mechanisms (royalties and corporate income tax) fit for purpose?
How can resource-rich countries adapt their mining tax regimes to seize opportunities and manage risks facing the sector?
How can global tax cooperation include the mining sector (if at all)?
How can tax policies help the mining sector to combat climate change?
