Abstract [en]

This report is based on a pre‐study aiming to provide an overview of what andhow the largest mining companies, internationally and in Sweden, communicate in terms of sustainability on their websites. The report presents a broad understanding of what large mining companies ‘say’ when it comes to sustainability. Conceptually, the study draws on writings in the areas of organizational communication, institutional theory and sustainability accounting. Methodologically, the study is based on qualitative textual analyses, to some extent aided by the text analytic tool Leximancer. The main findings of the study are that while most companies communicate all relevant sustainability issues and all the global leaders publish sustainability reports with the Global Reporting Initiative level A+, all companies distinctively communicate sustainability in unique ways. In this report, these similarities and differences in sustainability communication are retold in four main tensions and four main stories.
