Our Work

We focus on the issues that we think deliver on our purpose of enabling ambitious collective action to drive performance improvements at scale on key environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

We have set out strategic priorities that put us on course towards achieving breakthroughs for the mining and metals industry in the critical areas of environmental resilience, social performance, governance and transparency, and innovation for sustainability.

For each issue we work on, we seek to establish and adopt best practice principles that remove barriers to the creation of a safe, just and sustainable world enabled by responsibly produced minerals and metals.
