Sustainable development

The minerals sector is making moves to reduce its

environmental footprint and ensure a sustainable future


Industry awards programmes are giving more prominence to innovative environmental initiatives, such as cleaner burning of coal, managing acid mine drainage and ecological restoration of mine sites.

Many mining companies participate in initiatives such as the Business for Biodiversity Offsets Programme (BBOP), the Global Mining Initiative, and other programmes with sustainable development goals.

Through these avenues, companies are improving their reporting on sustainability, their vision for their businesses and best-practice.

Reporting on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives is becoming increasingly important to attract investors.
