International Involvement

Euromines' membership includes many companies that conduct operations outside of Europe or have other commercial interests around the globe. Therefore, the European industry is interested and involved in international issues and organisations.

Euromines is a member of International Council on Mining & Metals (ICMM) and actively participates in its work programme.


ICMM is a CEO-led organization representing many of the world's leading minera raw materials and metals companies as well as regional, national and commodity associations. ICMM provides a platform for industry and other key stakeholders to share challenges and develop solutions based on sound science and the principles of sustainable development.
