The challenge

Balancing resource development with environmental and social impacts

Guiding responsible resource development for the benefit of Australia.

The material demands of a growing world population continue to increase the demand for mineral resources, energy and water, at the same time expanding the environmental footprint of mining and processing operations.

There are a many social, productivity and environmental challenges facing the resources sector in Australia and across the world.

Technology, research and governance is needed to ensure that mineral resources are developed responsibly to meet demand for future generations.
