The Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA) is a comprehensive global standard that covers all mined materials (except energy fuels) coming from all sizes of industrial mines all over the world.
The standard’s mission is:
The standard is built on international industry best practices. It borrows from existing standards and guidelines and presents a comprehensive standard to define responsible mining.
RPM began its first IRMA review in 2022, ahead of the curve. We have the hands-on experience to tackle the challenges and a front-line perspective to understand the value associated with IRMA reviews.
RPM provides your organisation with a project director and peer reviewer who brings extensive operational and consulting experience, as well as deep-domain ITE and IESC expertise. Our dedicated and highly qualified technical ESG team are well versed in conducting IRMA and EP4/IFC audits, as we aim to support mining organisations through evolving challenges in the industry.
“We greatly appreciate the high-quality work RPMGlobal has consistently delivered. Their deep understanding of the environmental and social aspects of mining and the Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance, coupled with their responsiveness to our needs, has proven invaluable in evaluating potential mining investments.”
