Enduring Value Framework
The Enduring Value framework puts the minerals industry’s commitment to sustainable development into practice.
Based on the International Council on Mining and Metals’ 10 Principles of Sustainable Development, the framework establishes the industry’s leadership on responsible resource development.
Over 900 stakeholders provided input into the report. It aims to support both site managers and corporate executives to implement sustainable development principles at all levels within the business. It is a condition of membership of the MCA that companies accept the principles of Enduring Value.
The principles include the fundamentals of ethical governance, sound risk management and transparent engagement as well as individual principles relating to health and safety, employee rights, community development and environmental management.
The framework has been updated in recent years to ensure its relevance to mining operations and the expectations of our stakeholders.
