Briefing: Mining with principles to address a health and social crisis

5 June 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time, with governments and health services racing to slow the spread of the virus. Societies across the world are facing restrictions and we are seeing immeasurable pressure being placed on the global economy. Everyday, people are losing loved ones, their jobs and income, with no way of knowing when normality may return.

ICMM’s company members recognise this and have responded quickly by putting measures in place to safeguard and support workers and host communities. To illustrate this support and the resources delivered by members to date, ICMM has published a briefing 'COVID-19: ICMM member response'. Alongside examining the multitude of member responses, the briefing demonstrates why the industry is best placed to support nations, communities and supply chains as they persevere and then start to rebuild.
