In 2020, ICMM agreed a standard definition of social performance, (see box below). It also embarked on a project to compile this series of short, accessible, and practical tools to support greater understanding of what social performance is, and the enablers required within organisations to deliver good, consistent social performance. The tools distil practical insights from social practitioners, both from member companies and external experts, gained over decades of experience supporting organisations to ‘build in’ rather than ‘bolt on’ the management of social risks and impacts. The tools are primarily targeted at non-social performance specialists within mining companies, with an emphasis on integrating social performance considerations across whole-of-assets to improve decision making. They will also be useful to social performance specialists in communicating internally about how to integrate social performance across the business. They have been designed as an additional resource to the existing suite of ICMM materials which support improved social performance.
