THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

TSM Summary Report (2013)

The Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative is the Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) commitment to responsible mining and participation in the program is mandatory for our members. It is a set of tools and indicators to drive performance and ensure that our members are doing the right things for the right reasons at each of their facilities. Adhering to the guiding principles of TSM, mining companies demonstrate leadership by:

  • Engaging with communities.
  • Driving world-leading environmental practices.
  • Committing to the safety and health of employees and surrounding communities.

Today, communities expect more of mining companies and the industry expects much more of itself. TSM helps mining companies meet society’s needs for minerals, metals and energy products in the most socially, economically and environmentally responsible way.
