ICCM members commit not to mine near world heritage sites
THE International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) earlier this week said that its members would stay away from exploration-related activities at world heritage sites and focus on ensuring no net loss of biodiversity at any mining sites.
At the ongoing World Economic Forum in Davos, major mining companies, including Freeport-McMoRan, Teck, and Newmont, committed to taking urgent action to support a “nature-positive future” by 2030, according to a report by Reuters.
ICMM members, representing around 30% of the global metals market, said meeting demand for critical materials to drive sustainable development should not come at the expense of nature.
“In addition, we have committed to take steps in our value chains, landscapes, and the wider systems in which we operate so that the total impact of our actions contribute to a nature positive future,” said Rohitesh Dhawan, CEO of ICMM.
