Innovative, useful…and sustainable.
Through the Towards Sustainable Mining® program, we’re providing the responsibly-sourced minerals and metals that power the technologies of today and of the future. In turn, we’re helping businesses and their customers be confident in how they’re made.
The responsible sourcing movement is growing and extending to minerals and metals. Customers increasingly want to know that the raw materials for their products are mined responsibly. TSM can help demonstrate responsible sourcing as it produces site-level performance data in key environmental and social areas. These include how companies engage with local and Indigenous communities, how they manage biodiversity conservation and tailings, and how they protect worker and community safety and health.
Responding to the needs of technology providers and in light of TSM’s expansion globally, MAC announced a new addition to TSM in 2017 focused on preventing child and forced labour in the global mining supply chain. It responds to the needs of organizations such as the Responsible Business Alliance (formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition) to ensure and demonstrate that such labour practices have no place in their supply chains.
