Biodiversity Conservation Management

We believe that mining, conducted in consultation with communities of interest, can co-exist with biodiversity conservation.

Conserving biodiversity through all stages of a mine’s life cycle is an industry priority and helps to maintain a company’s privilege to operate.

The TSM Biodiversity Conservation Management Protocol consists of three indicators that set out expectations for mining companies with respect to conserving biodiversity.

The protocol seeks to confirm that mining facilities have made formal commitments to manage biodiversity at their sites, that action plans for significant biodiversity aspects are implemented, and that biodiversity conservation reporting systems are in place to inform decision-making and to communicate their performance publicly.
