International Conference on Sustainable Development in the Minerals Industry

International Conference on Sustainable Development in the Minerals Industry

“The WFEO Committee on Engineering and the Environment’s (CEE) Task Force on Mining and Sustainable Development is taking an active role in the 6th international conference on Sustainable Development in the Minerals Industry (SDIMI) in Milos, Greece June 30-July 3. The theme of the conference is the development, monitoring and assessment of sustainable development criteria for mineral operations. At present, the focus of public perception is placed on environmental and social consequences of mining. Growing environmental and social concerns, supply chain procurement standards, as well as public pressure and regulatory measures, will profoundly shape the global mineral business in the near future.

In order to cope with these challenges, the minerals community must integrate sustainable development concepts, best-practices and stakeholders participation into the technical considerations, business strategies and performance goals that are associated with all facets of mineral exploitation, from exploration to mine closure. The Conference also aims to conclude with a consensus plan and a process, representing a variety of stakeholders, which can provide guidance and direction to the minerals community on the path to sustainable development. CEE Chair Darrel Danyluk will participate on behalf of the WFEO and talk about “Capacity Building and Sustainability in the Engineering Disciplines.”
