Mining industry organisation International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) has published “Human Rights in the Metals and Mining Industry: Overview, Management Approach and Issues”, the first in a line of publications which, it says, affirms the organisation’s commitment to uphold human rights.
The objective of this publication, says ICMM, is to provide an overview of the main challenges and dilemmas that companies in the mining and metals sector often face. More specifically, it reviews management approaches that member companies have applied to dealing with human rights challenges.
