Companies committed to the Mining Responsibility System established in 2016 adhere to sustainability principles that benefit the environment, people, and the economy. Sustainable mining encompasses the entire lifecycle of a project, from mineral exploration to mine closure and post-closure monitoring.
The Mining Responsibility System provides concrete guidelines for mining companies to engage in sustainable practices. It also assesses and verifies member companies’ commitment to common rules.
Annual reporting also offers stakeholders the opportunity to track the progress of the industry’s sustainability efforts.
