Integrate sustainable development in corporate strategy and decision-making processes.
ICMM members commit to high standards of performance, and recognise the value of having business partners that share our commitment to responsible business practices.
The performance expectations
Developed with extensive input from NGOs, international organisations and academics, our Mining Principles establish baseline performance expectations for a responsible mining and metals industry. These two requirements define ICMM's decision-making performance expectations of company members.
INTEGRATE SUSTAINABILITY INTO DECISION-MAKING
Integrate sustainable development principles into corporate strategy and decision-making processes relating to investments and in the design, operation and closure of facilities.
SUPPORT RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS PARTNERS
Support the adoption of responsible health and safety, environmental, human rights and labour policies and practices by joint venture partners, suppliers and contractors, based on risk.
