    Description:  The author provides a summary of traditional sustainability concepts (social sustainability, sustainable development, corporate social responsibility), summarizes the new sustainability concepts promoted by the authors in Mining and Sustainable Development: Current Issues, then suggests that the optimal outcome of sustainability – whether through the application of the traditional sustainability concepts or the new sustainability concepts – is to earn an SLO. In order to maximize the likelihood of obtaining an SLO, mining companies need to hire an independent third party to conduct an effective SLO diagnosis – the particulars of which are summarized in the remainder of the chapter.
