The Development Partner Institute aspires to work with the mining sector and other stakeholders on fundamentally changing the business model of the industry to an integrated and proactive development partner, delivering on economic, environmental and social shared purpose.

To do this, the mission of the DPI is to engage the mining ecosystem to shape a new approach and way of thinking; advance and extend transformative innovative thinking around shifting to an integrated and proactive approach; and build bridges with groups that have a stake in mining by gaining trust, developing a common language, cultivating understanding and fostering new collaborations.
