A year of 'significant progress' on sustainability matters has been recorded by the International Council on Mining and Metals in its newly published annual review.

Among the highlights of 2004 outlined in the report are:
- the production of a mining and metals sector sustainability reporting supplement in conjunction with the Global Reporting Initiative
- significant progress on two programmes – the Resource Endowment initiative and the Community Development Tools project – that aim to enhance ICMM members’ social and economic contributions to the countries in which they operate
- strengthening ICMM’s collaboration with stakeholders through dialogue on biodiversity with the World Conservation Union (IUCN) and partnerships with the International Commission on Large Dams, the International Labour Organization, and the international trade union movement, ICEM
- the launch of a website on good practice in mining with the UN agencies Unep and UNCTAD, and the UK Department for International Development, at http://www.goodpracticemining.org
