We would like to thank all those who participated in the first edition of the #CSVContest. As a reminder, participants were asked to write a paper on the topic: “How can extractive industry stakeholders assure a fairer distribution of value?”. A jury from Mazars carefully reviewed all the submissions on the following criteria:
- Quality of the writing (clear, academic, structured)
- Originality of the argument
- Breadth, coherence and feasibility of the proposed solution
So without further ado, here are the two winners of the #CSVContest:
With a special focus on corruption eradication, Grameyru suggests a model to explain “how welfare can be achieved thanks to the extractive industry, and how primary stakeholders (the government, company, and society) are involved in the process”.

In his paper, Franck stresses the importance of reinforcing transparency (notably through the “Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative”), adapting the WTO’s international regulations regarding the extractive industry and involving financial institutions in the process.

Both our winners will receive an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. Thank you all for making this contest successful and stay tuned for the next challenge… In the meantime, let’s continue to discuss the way businesses interact with their environment on Twitter!
