Abstract:

Noranda is a $7 billion international mining and smelting company headquartered in Canada. It has been cited for its fine environmental record. This case explores the issue of sustainability--in this case, for a mining company. Over time, and under nongovernmental organization and governmental pressure, Norando moves gradually to goals approximating sustainability. At issue is the sustainability of Noranda's expenditures on environmental mitigation and the degree to which Noranda employs (or should employ) "best country" standards everywhere it operates.
