Changes to the ICMM's Mining Principles focus on asset-level ESG performance
Changes to the International Council on Mining & Metals' Mining Principles have for the first time articulated a clear set of expectations around ESG issues, according to ICMM chief operating officer, Aidan Davy.
Speaking to Mining Journal as part of the Stakeholder Engagement programme, he said the latest upgrades to the principles reflected what it meant to "live up to public promise of those high level, aspirational promises" and placed renewed focus on performance at an asset – rather than corporate – level.
"Because ICMM's Mining Principles will apply to more than 650 member assets in over 50 countries, we're really looking to drive performance improvements at scale," Davy said.
