MMSD+10: Reflecting on a decade of mining and sustainable development

It is 10 years since the Mining, Minerals and Sustainable Development (MMSD) initiative was completed. Its findings were game-changing for the sector, and mining CEOs of the day committed to act on its agenda as a robust and credible way to maximise the sector’s contribution to sustainable development. So where are we, 10 years on? How far have we travelled towards a sustainable and responsible mineral industry? This paper is intended as a ‘conversation starter’ – providing an initial assessment of the mining and minerals sector’s achievements against the MMSD agenda and opening up further discussion. Contribute your thoughts to where the industry is going and what the agenda should be for the next 10 years at www.iied.org/mmsd
