Collaborative innovation: development of a new initiative by ICMM

  • Share

As part of ICMM’s commitment to strengthen the social and environmental performance of the mining sector, a new initiative is being developed to address key health, safety and environmental impacts.

ICMM’s 27 company members, accounting for about half of global production, are identifying opportunities to collaborate with the world’s leading suppliers of mobile mining equipment to make mining safer by improving collision management technology, as well as significantly reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases and diesel particulate matter.

Following the success of two innovation summits that brought together ICMM members and suppliers, a governance model for collaboration has been designed and working groups have been established to develop an innovation roadmap to progress the initiative that we envisage will be launched by the end of the year.
