Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Practices of Gold Mining Industry In Cambodia

This report examines the practices of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles and other related compliance within Cambodia's gold industry. The findings, discussions, conclusions, and recommendations presented in this report are based on extensive research, including in-depth interviews conducted with investment personnel, provincial department representatives, and international NGOs, as well as semi-structured interviews with gold mining employees. Field observations were also carried out during data collection in Preah Vihear, Mondulkiri, and Ratanakiri provinces in September 2022. The report provides an overview of the state of labor rights during a specific period. It primarily focuses on issues such as working conditions, labor laws, health and safety regulations, environmental management, and any community-related concerns that may arise from gold mining operations. Methodologically, a qualitative approach was employed to gather data and information, enabling the formulation and analysis of findings from six gold mining companies across the three provinces. The study was conducted in a participatory manner, ensuring the active involvement and participation of key stakeholders throughout the various stages of the study.
