InBrief: Mining's contribution to sustainable development - an overview
ICMM has commissioned this series to describe mining and metals’ contribution to sustainable development. It seeks to set out some of the more important benefits, costs, risks and responsibilities related to mining and metals in today’s world.
The first publication in the series – Mining’s contribution to sustainable development: an overview – provides an introduction to the series and introduces the concept of contribution analysis.
Together, these discussions are intended to be a starting point for the industry and others to more fully examine the contribution of mining and metals to sustainable development, a conversation that will continue for years to come. They are intended to stimulate an exchange of ideas leading to the development of innovative ways forward.
The remaining publications in the series will be launched throughout the year.
