IOM3 commits to ‘Sustainable Future’ theme throughout 2021 to celebrate COP26

2021 is an important year in the efforts to move to a low-carbon and resource-efficient society, culminating in the Glasgow Climate Summit (United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26) in November.

 

As part of its commitment to helping build momentum on this effort, throughout 2021 IOM3 is organizing a series of virtual events, podcasts and editorial content on the theme of ‘Sustainable Future’. This includes an entire week of activities on 6–10 September. 

IOM3 has a leading role to play in supporting professionals in materials, minerals, mining and associated technical disciplines to become heroes of the transition to a low-carbon, resource efficient society, not villains.

IOM3 CEO Colin Church FIMMM CEnv CRWM MCIWM says, ‘The members of IOM3 are engaged in a wide range of activities in their day-to-day work that are relevant to addressing the interlinked challenges of climate change and resource use. During 2021, therefore, the Institute wants to showcase examples of this work to help underline the importance of materials, minerals, and mining in this effort and build on the national and global momentum leading up to the Glasgow Climate Summit.’
