6th International Conference on Sustainable Development in the Minerals Industry
30 June - 3 July 2013, Milos island, Greece
Milos+10: Incorporating Sustainability into the Educational Process
(10 years after the Milos Declaration on Sustainability in 2003)
The objective of this Conference is to assist the minerals industries in their global transition to sustainable development.
At present, the focus of public perception is placed on environmental and social consequences of mining. Growing environmental and social concerns, supply chain procurement standards, as well as public pressure and regulatory measures, will profoundly shape the global mineral business in the near future.
In order to cope with these challenges, the minerals community must integrate sustainable development concepts, best-practices and stakeholders participation into the technical considerations, business strategies and performance goals that are associated with all facets of mineral exploitation, from exploration to mine closure.
The main theme of the meeting, therefore, is the development, monitoring and assessment of sustainable development criteria for mineral operations.
The Conference also aims to conclude with a consensus plan and a process, representing a variety of stakeholders, which can provide guidance and direction to the minerals community on the path to sustainable development.
The conference is a Milos Conferences event.
