Climate change

Climate change is a critical global challenge. The scale of the challenge means that genuine leadership is required from all parts of society. ICMM, with member companies, is committed to being part of the solution, as most recently outlined in our climate change statement released prior to the United Nations climate change conference in Paris (COP21). This commits member companies to take action to reduce emissions and support a low carbon future.

Focus areas

Climate change policy design

The principles behind ICMM's 'Climate Change Policy Design' anchor our work to develop robust climate regulations that improve environmental performance.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions

Cost effective energy efficiencies have the dual benefits of reducing operational GHG emissions, while improving productivity and reducing costs.

Adapting to a changing climate

Our climate is changing, and this presents both risks and opportunities for the mining and metals sector.


This work supports the above sustainable development goal.
