Our purpose is leadership through collaboration to enhance the contribution of mining and metals to sustainable development.
ICMM is a unique industry body. We exist not to serve the commercial interests of our members, as you might expect from a ‘trade association’. Instead, we are a global leadership organisation for sustainable development, judging success by our contribution to creating a safe, just and sustainable world through responsibly produced metals and minerals.
The transition to a net-zero economy will be metal-intensive. It is our fundamental belief that when mined and produced responsibly minerals and metals can be transformational, enabling social progress and sustainable development within local communities and across entire nations. Taxes, jobs, skills, infrastructure, and community services are just some of the ways that host countries have experienced the benefits of mining. We are committed to maximising these, while minimising any potential for harm to people or planet.
Yet, we don’t shy away from uncomfortable truths. Despite the benefits, our industry has caused harm to people and planet. Our drive to minimise this harm, is encapsulated by our Mining Principles. These Principles are the essence of what it means to be a member of ICMM.
