WHAT IS TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE MINING (TSM)?

Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) is a set of standards to measure against to determine the sustainability of a mine and adhere to best practices in environmental management, safety and community engagement.

It is based on effective, on-the-ground performance protocols that allow mining companies to effectively manage their key risks while continually progressing and remaining transparent.

HOW TSM WORKS

The Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative allows mining companies to turn high-level environmental and social commitments into action on the ground.

Participation in the TSM initiative is mandatory for all MAC members for their Canadian operations.
