International Council on Mining and Metals

The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) is an international organisation dedicated to a safe, fair and sustainable mining and metals industry. Bringing together 27 mining and metals company members and over 35 national, regional and commodities association members, ICMM strengthens environmental and social performance and serve as a catalyst for change, enhancing mining’s contribution to society.

ICMM sees the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) as important in improving the governance of resource revenues, in reducing opportunities for corruption and for improving development outcomes in mineral-dependent economies. Our member companies see the benefits of involvement in the EITI at a country level through increases in trust and growth in the dialogue between governments, civil society and business.

Statement of support

Engagement with the EITI 

Every ICMM company member adheres to the ICMM Mining Principles, which incorporates comprehensive Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) requirements, robust site-level validation of performance expectations and credible assurance of corporate sustainability reports.

Company members of the ICMM are with their membership also EITI supporting companies. Representatives from ICMM member companies sit on the EITI Board and many are active participants on EITI national multi-stakeholder groups (MSGs). 

In countries that are not EITI compliant, ICMM advocates the constructive engagement of mining companies in appropriate forums to improve the transparency of mineral revenues, in line with ICMM's Position Statement on Transparency of Mineral Revenues
