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 26 of the world’s largest mining and metals companies as well as over 30 national and regional mining associations and global commodity associations. Members employ some 1 million people of the 2.5 million in the full sector. Their 1,300 operations are found scattered across over 70 countries.

ICMM members adhere to a series of commitments that require 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. Our current focus is on achieving societal acceptance for the mining and metals industry based in part on ICMM’s success in driving responsible practices.

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.
