Message from the President and CEO
Welcome to the 2014 TSM Progress Report. I am pleased to take this opportunity to present a detailed look at our members’ environmental and social performance for 2013.
In 2013, the membership continued to demonstrate performance improvements across the TSM protocols, including such highlights as:
- In the area of tailings management, 96% of facilities reported implementation of an operation, maintenance and surveillance (OMS) manual that adheres to industry best practices.
- The number of facilities assessed at a Level A or higher for demonstrating commitment and executive-level accountability for managing biodiversity conservation increased to 60% in 2013 from 33% in 2012.
- 85% of facilities reported a Level A or higher for implementing comprehensive energy use and GHG emissions tracking and reporting systems for internal and public reporting.
