Report shows strong performance in sustainable mining practices: The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) has released its 12th annual Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) Progress Report. The 2016 report takes a detailed look at MAC members’ efforts to protect the environment and contribute positively to the communities where they operate. The report includes 2015 performance results for 62 facilities from 22 mining companies, six of which had their results externally verified by a third party. The 2015 results show strong performance in several areas: • 85% of facilities have a comprehensive management system for energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, compared to 75% in 2014 • 86% have a robust crisis management plan in place at both the facility and corporate levels, compared to 83% in 2014 • 95% of facilities engaged in effective and meaningful two-way dialogue with communities of interest, including local Aboriginal communities • 100% of facilities implemented a safety and health management system. “After a little more than a decade of TSM implementation, we have seen a doubling in the number of MAC member facilities implementing good practices across the range of TSM performance areas, demonstrating TSM’s effectiveness as a performance driver.
