A Cross-Sector Guide for Implementing the Mitigation Hierarchy

The publication is aimed at environmental professionals working in, or with, extractive industries and financial institutions, who are responsible for overseeing the application of the mitigation hierarchy to biodiversity conservation, while balancing conservation needs with development priorities. The cross-sector approach  was essential in building an understanding about what good practice looks like.

Annual Report 2014

Euromines Annual Report 2014 is now available. The theme of this year’s Annual Report is  based  on Euromines Raw Materials Campaign and includes three main chapters covering the topics Euromines deals with throughout the year. The first part focuses on sustainable supply of raw materials, sector competitiveness and new European Industrial Policy. Whereas the second chapter highlights the human factor and focuses on mining employment, local communities, innovation and health and safety. The third part describes the number of achievements in the field of environment and energy.

In his foreword, Euromines president Mr. Mark Rachovides states  "Euromines strives very hard to inform and advance knowledge and debate on our industry to show its true role in Europe’s future." We believe this Annual Report will contribute to this.
