ICMM Water Stewardship Framework (2014)

This framework provides a common direction, a consistent point of reference and a shared language for companies to continue their water stewardship journey together.

Primary Functions

  • Provides a framework to guide mining companies engaging water stewardship

Detailed Description

ICMM’s Water stewardship framework outlines a common industry approach for what is a complex and locally-defined issue.

Water is one of the most significant issues facing the mining and metals industry and is a critical resource not only for all our members’ operations but also for other industries, communities and the natural environment. Water stewardship requires a management approach based on finding solutions that work for the business and those other water users.

ICMM’s Water stewardship framework is built around four key elements:

1. be transparent and accountable

2. engage proactively and inclusively

3. adopt a catchment-based approach

4. effective water resource management.
