Biodiversity Conservation Management

MCA members believe that mining, conducted in consultation with communities of interest, can co-exist with biodiversity conservation. The MCA TSM Biodiversity Conservation Management Protocol sets out expectations for mining companies with respect to conserving biodiversity.

The protocol seeks to confirm that mining facilities have made formal commitments to manage biodiversity at their sites, that action plans for significant biodiversity aspects are implemented, and that biodiversity conservation reporting systems are in place to inform decision-making and to communicate their performance publicly.
