PDAC – e3Plus: A Framework for Responsible Exploration
A PDAC corporate social responsibility initiative
e3 Plus: A Framework for Responsible Exploration was developed by the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) to help companies exploring for minerals improve their social, environmental, and health and safety performance. The framework was compiled through extensive consultation with industry representatives, NGOs, academia, government and communities. e3 Plus is built around eight principles for responsible exploration and includes guidance notes and toolkits with comprehensive information on social responsibility, environmental stewardship, community engagement, and health and safety. e3 Plus is a free online information resource accessible through the PDAC website and by visiting the website below.
