Abstract The supply of minerals and energy is critical to the maintenance and growth of human and environmental wellbeing. However, the necessarily disruptive processes can create collateral negative impacts that result in trade-offs with the benefits of supply. Individual companies that undertake these activities have taken steps to minimise any negative impacts and legacies. Similarly, companies have joined in various associations to coordinate the development of policies and the principles that underpin them. The International Council on Mining and Metals is the most globally-prominent industry association. This special volume will explore the changes in light of Rio20+ against the backdrop of the potential for change as articulated by ICMM and other organisations. Publications and guidelines on many topics have been published, e.g., human rights, mine closure, social development, operating in a carbon constrained world, resource endowment etc. The special volume will analyse the achievements that the mining sector has made, take a critical look at areas where progress has been less than what might have been hoped, identify barriers to progress and highlight opportunities for future progress. Papers are invited on all aspects of operating sustainably and how this relates to sustainable development at regional and national levels.
