Code of Conduct

The FIMI’s Code of Conduct is a voluntary commitment by the mining companies to the SMI Code of Conduct in form of 10 Sustainable Mining Principles. The code of conduct is currently optional for adoption by all FIMI members. While committing to it, FIMI members become SMI members. The adoption of these principles is expected to lead to a positive change in the sustainability performance of the mining sector thereby in society’s perceptions about the mining industry and reduce the tough stance of government, judiciary and society in general.
