Membership in IRMA is a first step in your commitment to responsible mining.
IRMA members commit to a shared participation in achieving the IRMA vision.
What does this mean in practice?
This means that our members have unique roles to play but they can all participate in making responsible mining the norm. They can use responsibly mined materials or advocate for responsible mining to those they influence.
What one of our members says…
“ArcelorMittal supplies many different sectors with steel, from automotive parts, packaging and construction. An increasing number of our customers want reassurance that every link in their entire supply chain operates to high levels of environmental and social standards. This means both our steel plants but also the mines we buy from. We believe one system that is suitable for all mined materials, is multi-stakeholder and independent, must be the best long term service we can offer our customers.”
