Responsible Mining Foundation

Hélène Piaget is the CEO of Responsible Mining Foundation, based in Switzerland. The Foundation supports the view that mining is an important contributor to the wellbeing of societies, but that we need to ensure responsible mining actually benefits the economies, improves the lives of peoples and respects the environments of producing countries.

The RMI Report 2020 assesses the performance of 12 companies with operations in Europe and Central Asia on topics such as climate change, tailings, water and post-closure management - a crucial issue for many European countries, where the mining legacy left by thousands of abandoned sites negatively impact countries’ plans to secure a social licence to restart or modernise the mining sector.
