The vision of the SMIFU
Our vision of the Sustainable Mine and Innovation for the Future
We base our image of the Sustainable Mine and Innovation for the Future on a shared vision and shared commitments.
The mining industry is an important supplier of efficient and sustainable solutions to meet the needs of modern society for metals and minerals. Safe, Lean and Green technology and an innovative organization attract talented young men and women to meet the grand challenges and opportunities of future mineral supply.
The organizations endorsing our vision:
- strive for zero accidents through the development of technology and promotion of innovations in organization and safety culture,
- contribute to sustainable mining by cutting energy consumption, CO2, emissions and ore losses by more than 30% compared to the current baseline and striving to prevent harmful emissions from the operations, and
- stay competitive by means of vigorous efforts in research, development and innovation whereby the mining industry is moving in stages from full mechanization to a fully controlled process industry.
