published the statement “Approach to Controversial Issues and B Corp Certification – Mining Industry.”

The statement requires a mining company’s operations to achieve IRMA 50 to be certified as a B Corp, and to achieve IRMA 75 within six years of initial B Corp Certification to retain B Corp Certification.

The statement adds, “achievement of IRMA 50 represents a relatively significant level of achievement, and IRMA’s multiple tiered approach is designed to enable continuous improvement over time.”
