2016 AWARD


2016 AWARD

The IMA-Europe Award Scheme Every two years, since 2006, IMA-Europe issues its prestigious Recognition Award. Symbolic in nature, it is a much valued token of recognition. Initially, the Recognition Award was attributed by the IMA-Europe Board of Directors to third parties' initiatives which promoted the industrial minerals sector through educational or awareness raising projects or that contributed to the innovation of the sector. Since 2012, the IMA-Europe Award Scheme opened up to the industrial minerals industry, recognizing the initiative as an excellent way to promoting and exchanging best practices within the sector. IMA-Europe is thereby assisted by an independent expert Jury. The IMA-Europe 2016 Recognition Awards are granted to outstanding projects that bring signi cant contributions to: Safety, Innovation, Biodiversity and Public Awareness, Acceptance & Trust. The Award themes are linked to EU policy objectives, supporting notably the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials and the EU Biodiversity Strategy. The IMA-Europe Safety Award on the other hand actively supports the IMA-Europe Target Zero Injury initiative; focusing this year on “Injury Prevention and Health Protection”.

Vision for the IMA-Europe Award Scheme – a platform for the promotion of leadership The IMA-Europe Awards enhance transparency and awareness, and allow for the exchange of best pract ces, ult mately benefitt ng the ent re m nerals sector.
