IFC: A Partner for Sustainable Mining Development

Metals and minerals underpin the devices, vehicles, and infrastructure that link the world, connect the unconnected, and bridge the digital divide. They are necessary ingredients for a low-carbon future and foundational to the goal of equitable, inclusive, and sustainable growth.

Sustainable mining also offers the opportunity to bring tangible long-term benefits to the people who live in the surrounding communities.
