From the introduction of legislation to address climate change and greenhouse gas emissions to working with indigenous peoples and local communities surrounding proposed projects, environmental and social responsibility has become an integral part of exploration and mining. Against this background, Mining Environmental Management in partnership with PDAC and ICMM proudly present their first environmental event in conjunction with PDAC’s annual convention in Toronto, Canada

“This one-day conference is an exciting extension to what MEM already brings readers in print, and the planned programme already contains some hot topics” Katherine Welch, Editor, MEM

" The partnership of PDAC, MEM and the ICMM is a powerful one with much potential. I am looking forward to the MPE event as an exciting and effective contribution to the PDAC annual convention, presenting the most up to day thinking and activities on all matters related to CSR, sustainable development and the mining industry," Tony Andrews, Executive Director, PDAC

"This event will address many of the key social and environmental challenges facing the industry today" Ben Peachey, Communications Director, ICMM

Incorporating World Mines Ministries Forum

Mining, People and the Environment will also incorporate the formerly biennial World Mines Ministries Forum, bringing an additional wealth of experience and perspective from governments, civil society and community leaders to the conference’s forum discussions
