Pursue continual improvement in social performance and contribute to the social, economic and institutional development of host countries and communities.
ICMM members commit to support the development of the communities and countries they operate in, and the effective management of local grievances. This is supported by meaningful engagement with local people, taking care to include women, vulnerable or marginalised groups.
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 four requirements define ICMM's social performance expectations of company members.
9.1: Contribute to community development
9.2: Support local economic opportunities
9.3: Conduct local stakeholder engagement
9.4: Collaborate on artisanal mining challenges
