Media Backgrounder: Australia Adopts Towards Sustainable Mining Program

On March 3rd, 2021, the Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) Towards Sustainable Mining® (TSM) program, a globally recognized sustainability initiative that supports mining companies in managing key environmental and social risks, was officially adopted by the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA), the national mining association representing one of the world’s most significant mining sectors.

Increasingly, other mining associations, governments, investors, and manufacturers are looking to TSM as global best practice in sustainable and responsible mining. In recent years, mining associations in Spain, Finland, Norway, Botswana, Argentina, Brazil, and the Philippines have adopted the program. With the addition of Australia, TSM is now being used by national mining associations in nine countries on six continents that have adopted the program to improve performance in their domestic mining sectors with more expected to sign on this year.
