ICMM Annual Review 2011

,5 Mar 2012
The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) has released its 2011 Annual Review – Our Journey – which marks the 10th anniversary of the organization.
“In its first 10 years, ICMM has made significant progress,” said new ICMM chair, Marius Kloppers (CEO, BHP Billiton). “We have established a solid foundation for member accountability. All ICMM member companies commit to ICMM’s 10 sustainable development principles and formally report their progress through independently verified reports.”
For the third time in an ICMM annual review, member progress was assessed against their reporting and assurance commitments. Seventeen out of the 21 member companies obtained a G3 A+ application level compared to 15 in 2010 and 8 in 2009. This means the 17 companies reported on all the indicators required in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Mining and Metals Sector Supplement and sought independent third party assurance of their reports.
