What is the Case Study about?
For the task, imagine that the members of your group have recently been appointed as the board of directors
of the case company (“Mines R Us”) that is seeking to re-position and re-brand itself as a Responsible Business
(i.e., A Responsible Business Mindset) after being held responsible for two major incidents. Firstly, the collapse of
a mine tailings dam that devastated the local community and environment in a mining town in Peru, and secondly,
the destruction of 36,000 year old sacred indigenous caves in a Canadian heritage site. These incidents have
left the Mines R Us’s reputation in tatters and had a significant negative impact on the company’s share price. In
the past the case company has embarked on a traditional business strategy focused solely on the pursuit of
shareholder profit (i.e., A Shareholder Primacy Mindset). Mines R Us is a large multinational company and was
considered a leader in the sector until these devastating incidents occurred that took several lives and destroyed
significant communities and natural environments.
