Sustainable Water Management Award

MMG logo with tage line

MMG is a mid-tier global resources group that mines, explores and develops base metal projects globally. MMG's operations are located in Australia, Laos and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It has also two significant development projects in Australia and Canada and global portfolio of exploration projects.

Sustainability is what really matters to MMG. Our challenge is to deliver the benefits of our operations to all our stakeholders – whether they are shareholders, employees or the communities in which we operate, while efficiently managing our environmental sustainability.

MMG is committed to excellence in sustainability performance through alignment with the International Council on Mining and Metals' Sustainable Development Framework.

We are addressing the current environmental challenges across our operations, as well planning for those evolving ones being presented by climate change and water resource scarcity.

Water – its availability, management, treatment and disposal, presents an increasing challenge for us and our sector, whether we are controlling flood waters in the North West Queensland, dealing with the challenges of scarcity, re-cycling and re-use in Western Australia, or providing potable drinking water to local villagers in Laos.

To meet these challenges we are evolving a robust Water Management Strategy and detailed Water Management Plan.

However, MMG recognises that broader commitment to efficient water use and management is required, and Australia's organisations and researchers are uniquely positioned to fulfil that need.

We have therefore chosen to sponsor the Banksia Sustainable Water Management Award, which acknowledges the innovators and leaders in this area.

"At MMG we mine for progress. We acknowledge that our growth and business success rests on our ability to preserve and protect natural resources and share lasting community benefits. No resource is more precious to share than water, and we are proud to partner with the Banksia Foundation to recognise excellence in water management." MMG Limited CEO, Andrew Michelmore.
