TSM is about improving industry’s reputation through improved performance

Towards Sustainable Mining

What is Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM)?

Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) is a set of guiding principles and performance elements that govern key activities of companies in all sectors of the mining and mineral-processing industry.  TSM, a leader in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR), was launched by the Mining Association of Canada in 2004.

TSM helps the industry sustain its position as a leading economic contributor in Canada while protecting the environment and remaining responsive to Canadians. It helps the industry maintain its social license to operate. It helps the industry improve its performance by aligning mining activity with the priorities and values of its communities of interest. In essence, it helps the industry operate in a proactive, socially responsible way.

In May 2011, the Mining Association of British Columbia became the first provincial association to adopt the Mining Association of Canada’s Towards Sustainable Mining Initiative.
