About International Council on Mining and Metals

ICMM is an international organisation dedicated to a safe, fair and sustainable mining industry. We serve as a catalyst for change, enhancing mining’s contribution to society and believe that only by mining with principles can the mining and metals industry contribute to sustainable development and protect the planet

The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) is a CEO-led collaborative of 28 of the world’s largest mining and metals companies as well as 37 national and regional mining associations and global commodity associations. Members employ some 1 million people of the 2.5 million in the full sector. Collectively they operate 650 sites in 50 countries.

ICMM members adhere to our Mining Principles which incorporate comprehensive environmental, social and governance requirements, robust site-level validation of performance expectations and credible assurance of corporate sustainability reports. This requires specific action on a range of sustainable development-related topics including water and land stewardship, climate change and energy, the responsible supply and use of materials, economic and social progress and worker and community health and safety.

Working together and with others, ICMM seeks leadership through performance, to listen and engage, to enhance understanding and to shape the policy environment.

ICMM’s approach is anchored in leading and facilitating collaboration between mining, minerals and metals companies and other interests that include industry colleagues, governments, investors, communities, Aboriginal Peoples, academia, and many different organisations of civil society. ICMM seeks simultaneous value-creation for shareholders and host societies.
Often ICMM is called upon to convene and facilitate conversations between interested parties who express different perspectives and values. It discharges this role as a quasi-independent party and has gained the respect and trust of others to play this role.

ICMM plays no role in competitive market positioning.

4.5/5

"The role includes me working across a range of projects including work on biodiversity, the circular economy and climate change. Each day is different but the main tasks involve writing reports, organising and partaking in working groups with external stakeholders, or the creation of supporting materials for events. I report to my line manager who ensures that the workload is appropriate and also highlights other opportunities for development such as courses on ways to collaborate." Read full review

4.5/5

"Supporting delivery of ICMM’s work plan, through desk-top research and analysis related to environmental and social topics, and involvement in projects or other initiatives. Other involvement could be administrative assistance, planning and supporting events, or communications support like messaging documents or media tracking. As the role is ad-hoc and the type of work at ICMM varies, each day may be a mix of ongoing research work, administrative assistance, or communications tasks." Read full review
