Draft GRI guidelines for mining released
Draft sustainability reporting guidelines for mining and metals companies have been released by the International council for mining and metals (ICMM). The document will be formally issued later this year as a sectoral supplement to general reporting guidelines developed by the Global reporting initiative (GRI). The draft proposes new, sector-specific indicators relating to biodiversity and transport. It includes commentary on other GRI environmental indicators such as material stewardship, waste management and air emissions. Draft EU rules on clean-up operations at mining sites are currently under preparation (EED 01/04/04). See press release and draft supplement.
