Initiative For Responsible Mining Assurance

IRMA is an international standard that certifies social and environmental performance at mine sites globally. Its rigor makes it a source of reference for a wide range of stakeholders.

Our Commitment: With this certification, we seek to promote a shift in mining toward a focus on sustainable production processes that generate positive social and environmental impacts.

The Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA) standard provides a framework for developing responsible processes in our value chain throughout the mining life cycle. In September 2020, we began the self-assessment process at the Salar de Atacama operations to determine the degree of alignment and design our work plan.

The standard contributes to analysis of 26 topics and their requirements based on four principles: Business Integrity, Planning for Positive Legacies, Social Responsibility and Environmental Responsibility.

With this certification, we seek to promote a shift in mining toward a focus on sustainable production processes that generate positive social and environmental impacts.
