Code of Conduct (CoC)
The FIMI’s Code of Conduct is a voluntary commitment to 10 Sustainable Mining Principles. The code of conduct is currently optional for adoption by all FIMI members. While committing to it, FIMI members become SMI members. The CoC was launched on 01.08.2012 and so far it has been adopted by 23 companies.
The adoption of these principles is expected to lead to a positive change in the sustainability performance of the mining sector thereby in society’s perceptions about the mining industry and reduce the tough stance of government, judiciary and society in general.
SMI conducts an annual Desktop assessment of the progress that each member company is making against the Code of Conduct. The resulting annual performance assessment will be published in SMI’s Annual Review. The performance assessment for the year 2014-15
has been carried out.
