As demand for minerals and metals continues to grow, and with Canada a demonstrable leader in sustainable mining practices, there is tremendous potential for the country to position itself as a responsible supplier of the mineral and metal products the world needs. Mining responsibly is becoming increasingly important for the industry, particularly in Canada.
Given the essential nature of mining to our daily lives, it is vital that our industry focus on the future. Playing a leadership role in sustainable practices is an important priority for our sector. We want to ensure the metals and minerals needed for the transition to a low-carbon economy are sourced using the highest environmental and social standards. Now more than ever, people want to know that the raw materials in their products were mined responsibly, and the standards included in our Towards Sustainable Mining® program, are raising the bar for mining.
