Abstract

The Australian minerals industry is well advanced in effective environmental management, as demonstrated through the Australian Minerals Industry Code for Environmental Management. Increasingly, however, stakeholders are seeking greater assurances that the industry is effectively managing its impacts across the triple bottom line particularly in relation to its social impacts on host and Indigenous communities. In recognition of the importance of integrating sustainable development principles at both the corporate and site level, the Minerals Council of Australia is developing a Sustainable Development Code that will operationalise the ICMM SD framework and provide for the reporting and benchmarking of industry performance.
