Abstract [en]

The procurement of ores and metals necessitates consideration of the sustainability of both the productand of the producer. Current trends in procurement practices move toward assuring the lowestenvironmental, social and economic impacts feasible. In order to ensure a high level of sustainability inthe raw materials acquired, the practices and methods of the producers must be evaluated. To this enddifferent assessment models may be used. This report aims to, through an investigation ofcontemporary assessment models; develop an assessment model which facilitates the sustainableprocurement of ores and metals with a reduced need for compliance from the assessed parties. Theevaluation is carried out based on the triple bottom line (TBL) definition of sustainability and considersthe practices and needs of the ores and metals industry. A number of desirable traits were found in themodels evaluated. A design for a novel assessment model is proposed for scoring ore and metalproducers. The proposed model features recommendations for weighing methods and specifications forimpact indicators, measurement methods, and grading methods.

Abstract [sv]

Malm- och metallindustri arbetar allt mer med hållbar utveckling. Detta kräver metoder för attsäkerställa att potentiella underleverantörer använder sig av procedurer och strategier som anses sundaur ett hållbarhetsperspektiv. För att undersöka detta finns etablerade bedömningsmodeller. Syftet meddenna rapport är att utvärdera dessa modeller för få en grund på vilken en ny modell, anpassad förmalm- och metallindustrin, kan utformas. Denna nya modell utformas för att minska krav av storaeftergifter från de aktörer som undersöks. Utvärderingen baseras på ”triple bottom line” -definitionenav hållbar utveckling och tar hänsyn till behoven som finns i industrin, och de metoder som redananvänds. Arbetet resulterade i att ett antal egenskaper som är önskvärda för en bedömningsmodellidentifierades. Med dessa egenskaper i beaktande utformades en ny bedömningsmodell medrekommendationer för viktning av betyg och specifikationer för mätpunkter, mätmetoder, ochbetygsmodeller.
