We bring together 21 mining and metals companies as well as 35 national and regional mining associations and global commodity associations to maximize the contribution of mining, minerals and metals to sustainable development.

ICMM is a membership organization, led by the CEOs of many of the world’s largest mining and metals companies and associations. ICMM is committed to driving social, economic and environmental progress.

We serve as an agent for change and continual improvement. Our vision is one of leading companies working together and with others to strengthen the contribution of mining, minerals and metals to sustainable development.
