  • Sharing good practice www.goodpracticemining.com/


Icmm principles l.jpg

ICMM Principles

Ten principles that address:

  • Corporate governance

  • Human rights

  • Risk management

  • Health and safety

  • Environmental performance

  • Biodiversity protection

  • Materials stewardship

  • Social, economic and institutional development

  • Engagement and verified reporting arrangements


Dialogue with iucn l.jpg

Dialogue with IUCN

  • Aims:

    • Improve performance of the mining industry in biodiversity conservation

    • Raise awareness and understanding between conservation community and industry, so both can contribute to improved outcomes for conservation and development

  • 3 - 5 year objectives:

    • Exploring more strategic and participatory approaches to planning and management at the land/seascape level as a tool for achieving balanced development and conservation outcomes

    • Strengthening IUCN Protected Area Management Categories System

    • Exploring options for addressing related issues:

      • legacy sites

      • prior informed consent

      • empowerment of indigenous peoples and local communities


Biodiversity work programme l.jpg

Biodiversity Work Programme

  • World Heritage commitment in 2003

  • Successful participation in WPC and WCF

  • Case studies with IUCN, November 2004

  • Discussion papers on biodiversity offsets (July 2005)

    • Promote discussion and debate amongst all stakeholders

    • Background on offsets

  • Land use planning with UNESCO, IUCN and others

  • Review of IUCN protected areas category system

    • IUCN process – ICMM is one contributor

  • Round table on mining and Indigenous Peoples

    • Identify, discuss and scope out the issues

    • Build consensus on relevant fora and processes to pursue them further


Good practice guidance document l.jpg

Good practice guidance document

  • Overseen by IUCN-ICMM Advisory Group

  • Written for technical and environmental managers at mines

    • Assumes some technical ability

    • Not a biodiversity textbook

  • Captures what is currently understood to be good practice

  • Will be guidance for ICMM members (and others who wish to use it), not mandatory

  • Covers entire mining life cycle

  • Case studies provide practical examples

  • Previous version put out for public consultation in June-August

  • New version will be a complete overhaul of the previous one


What next l.jpg

What next?

  • GPG will be tested by members in consultation with interested parties and revised if necessary

  • National associations encouraged to develop detailed, specific guidance

  • GPG is aligned with several components of the OECD strategy:

    • integrate biodiversity into planning and policies (1)

    • support conservation and enhancing biodiversity (3)

    • prevent introduction of invasive species (4)

    • promote awareness, collect and disseminate information (5)

    • assist developing countries in reducing threats (7)


F c asset management says l.jpg

F&C Asset Management says…

On extractive industry companies’ management of biodiversity:

"Overall, we believe that mining companies, particularly those that are members of the trade body International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), are leading the way”.
