ICMM is actively partnering with conservation organisations and other sectors in order to share learnings and expertise, and to develop leading approaches to biodiversity management.
To this end, we have worked closely with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to develop practical guidance on biodiversity management, and to produce independent reports on biodiversity offsets. We have also worked with IUCN to improve member company biodiversity performance by supporting a joint review.
ICMM is also part of the Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI) alongside IPIECA and the Equator Principles Association. Launched in April 2013, CSBI is a unique collaboration between the finance and extractives sectors to develop and share good practices related to biodiversity and ecosystem services. To date, the partnership has delivered practical guidance on implementing the mitigation hierarchy and biodiversity baseline data collection.
