GLOBAL MINING REVIEW | The Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) is proud to have led Australia’s minerals industry from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in helping to keep workers, families and local communities safe.
This could not have been done without the strong and united backing of its member companies, the wider resources sector including state chambers and APPEA, the nation’s resource ministers and mining unions including the CFMMEU and the AWU.
The industry was able to use its existing strong safety culture and safety systems to rapidly respond to the health and hygiene challenge.
The MCA is also focused on leading the Australian minerals sector on climate action through its Climate Action Plan, which demonstrates that the minerals sector supports the Paris Agreement goals and not only has the ambition to decarbonise the sector, but also has an action plan to help get it there.
In this context, the MCA welcomes today’s confirmation by BHP in its latest industry association review of the importance of responsible and constructive advocacy and the need to align with community and stakeholder expectations.
