CCCMC aligns with ICMM to promote mining with principles

Source:CCCMC Published:2017-12-13 Editor:

CCCMC and the International Council of Mining and Metals (ICMM) announced on Dec. 8th, 2017 that we have entered into a formal agreement to help promote sustainable development in Chinese companies’ overseas mining investments.


The new agreement makes CCCMC and ICMM’s wealth of expertise available to Chinese mining enterprises that are looking to further improve their environmental and social performance practices, as we step up their presence worldwide.

The MoU will also help Chinese enterprises address the new challenges that the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development place on industry, governments and civil society alike through its ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

Globally, the extractives sector is under intense scrutiny. Stakeholders (especially governments, communities, investors, insurers and civil society) have expressed concerns about the sector in terms of its environmental and social performance and the sector’s contribution to poverty reduction and sustainable development.

 

This Memorandum of Understanding will help Chinese overseas mining operations to meet society’s environmental and social performance expectations, and to successfully adhere to increasingly stricter environmental and social performance standards.
