The Botswana Chamber of Mines (BCM) has announced that it will adopt the Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative, a corporate social responsibility programme developed by the Mining Association of Canada (MAC), to improve environmental and social practices in the mining industry.
This is first time that TSM has been adopted by a mining association in Africa, and the third to do so outside of Canada. FinnMin, the Finnish Mining Association, adopted TSM in November 2015 and the Cámara Argentina de Empresarios Mineros, the Argentinean Chamber of Mining Entrepreneurs, adopted the initiative in October last year.
