This report includes the 2016 TSM performance results for 65 mining facilities across Canada belonging to 22 of our member companies. This year, 20 mining facilities had their results externally verified as part of TSM’s three-year external verification cycle. Two mines reported TSM performance for the first time and are included in aggregate graphs for each of the protocols. Once again, we saw overall performance improvements in many of the TSM protocols:
- 98% report publicly on their engagement and dialogue activities, compared to 94% in 2015.
- 93% have a crisis management and communications plan, compared to 86% in 2015.
- 72% report publicly on biodiversity conservation activities and performance, compared to 66% in 2015.
- 56% have established and met energy and GHG emissions performance targets, compared to 44% in 2015.
