A new global campaign aims to promote ‘safe, fair and sustainable mining’.

The International Council of Mining & Metals (ICMM) has launched a new campaign and website to showcase how it is working towards a universally safe, fair and sustainable mining and metals industry.

ICMM brings together 23 mining and metals companies and over 30 regional and commodities associations—including the International Copper Association—to help strengthen environmental and social performance.

The new website, www.miningwithprinciples.com, provides an overview of how the resources industry is working to strengthen sustainable mining, and what more is to be done. ICMM encourages companies and other organisations to adopt their Sustainable Development Framework across three main strategy areas: Environment, Ethical Business and Local Communities.
