IRMA LEADERS RESPOND TO BRAZIL TAILINGS DISASTER

The multi-stakeholder leadership of the Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA) joins colleagues and communities around the world in expressing tremendous sadness over the loss of life resulting from the tailings dam failure in Brumadinho, Brazil on Friday 25 January.

This catastrophe, the world’s third of a similar nature in the past five years, provides tragic evidence for the pressing need for rigorous, high-bar standards in the mining sector. At IRMA, we have worked together for over a decade to set forth such standards, collaborating across five key stakeholder groups—mining companies, downstream users of mined products, NGOs, labor unions, and affected communities—to provide clear and measurable best practices in our Standard for Responsible Mining.
