If you are new to IRMA, welcome!
The Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA) is a voluntary certification system aiming to improve mining operations' performance. Mine sites that choose to invest in an IRMA assessment have their environmental and social performance measured by independent audit teams.

IRMA’s release of the public report initiates a cycle of continuous improvement and review at the mine.
Stakeholder input is a big part of IRMA assessments because feedback of those living close to an operation help auditors understand better how the mine site responds to area needs and concerns relating to IRMA Standard criteria.
