TSM Progress Report 2005

Measuring our members’ latest TSM performance.

This report takes a detailed look at our progress and performance in the past year. It also describes how we have benefitted from the invaluable advice of our Community of Interest Advisory Panel on the design and implementation of TSM.

As always, you will find thorough reporting of the industry’s releases to the environment, including efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. Detailed release data are provided in the bulletins in the back pocket of this report. Also provided are updates on the industry’s key research initiatives, MITHE-RN and MEND, both of which are improving our understanding of how to address the industry’s environmental and health practices.

The year we present four feature articles that illustrate the mining industry’s commitment to TSM and sustainable development. One article showcases Albian Sands’ bird deterrence system, which is gaining worldwide recognition. Teck Cominco describes how its Trail facility is getting into the e-scrap business, recycling old computers instead of sending them to landfill. A third article looks at the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business and its Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) program. Two MAC members, Syncrude and Diavik, have achieved PAR gold status. In the fourth article De Beers Canada, soon to be this country’s largest diamond producer, describes its sustainable development philosophy and actions.
