Sustainable development goals

In January 2016, A Preliminary Atlas – “Mapping mining to the sustainable development goals” was released to encourage mining companies of all sizes to incorporate relevant SDG’s into their business and operations, validate their current efforts and spark new ideas. In August 2016, and given the ongoing commitment of the Tacmin Group of companies to sustainable development support, a policy decision was made to commit to the United Nations “Mapping mining to the sustainable development goals”.

Improve compliance

Existing management frameworks are likely to contain commitments to company performance that are relevant to the SDG’s such as ensuring a safe workplace, minimizing negative impacts on the environment and enhancing local employment.

Identify impact at mine sites

Many companies use risk and opportunity assessment methodologies as a predictive planning tool. Risk and opportunity assessments are useful to identify potential material impacts and to develop and prioritise responses.

Promote implementation

Identifying the specific relevance of each SDG and opportunities to integrate actions into operations is helped if there is an understanding of the nature and scope of the impact of mining activities in the local content.
