The amount of taxes paid by multinational corporations often appears in the media headlines – often times for the wrong reasons. What is not reported is that the mining sector is often the largest contributor of budget revenues (corporate income tax, royalties, dividends, indirect taxes, employee, and supplier taxes) in many developing countries and the largest employers. The investments and budget contributions by mining companies across Africa are a significant driver of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
