Australia’s minerals industry is proud of its world-leading approach to sustainability. This includes the rehabilitation of mining land to make it available for other uses after mining ends. Australian mining conservation partnerships also help local wildlife flourish by helping to preserve and protect Australia’s unique native species. Our research has shown that Australians want to hear more about the industry’s approach to responsible environmental management.
The Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) is the leading advocate for Australia’s world leading minerals industry, promoting and enhancing sustainability, profitability and competitiveness. The MCA represents a world-leading minerals sector that is dynamic, diverse, sustainable and valued by all Australians. Australia’s minerals industry is innovative, technologically advanced, capital intensive, and environmentally and socially progressive. The industry is a major contributor to national income, investment, high-wage jobs, exports and government revenues in Australia.
The MCA acknowledges and pays its respects to past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
