The National Mining Association (NMA) is committed to advancing progress on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues. In 2020, the NMA established a CEO-led ESG Task Force to examine a wide range of ESG issues and policy positions and to promote innovative solutions that enhance ESG performance amongst member companies.
The ESG Task Force, representing the diverse NMA membership, is in the process of building out the association’s ESG platform to ensure we are providing our members value-added resources, peer-to-peer exchange, and other opportunities to discuss priority ESG matters for the mining industry and our customers. The NMA’s platform is designed to maximize resources and facilitate valuable information exchange within its membership to assist individual companies in advancing their ESG programs. To that end, the ESG Task Force’s platform involves three stages that work concurrently together: inform, formulate and action. That process is actively underway and involves constant engagement by U.S.-based miners and suppliers to the industry.
The ESG Task Force’s work will continue to evolve based on the needs of our members. Our current efforts are focused on providing our membership access to essential ESG resources, educational opportunities on priority ESG matters, and identifying opportunities for continued engagement with our ESG stakeholders.
Our industry stands with the rest of the world in this dedication to addressing critical ESG matters, while continuing to provide the raw materials that make modern life possible and that will fuel America’s economic recovery. We believe this is a journey of continued growth and learning. We will continue to update this page with the work of our ESG Task Force, and stories from our industry.
Our position statements, developed through a collaborative process with our members, are posted below, along with member company stories that bring the industry’s strong ESG work to life.
