2018 AWARD


2018 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 in the sector. Since 2012, the IMA-Europe Award Scheme opened 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 2018 Recognition Awards are granted to outstanding projects that bring signi cant contributions to: Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services, Health & Safety, Innovation, and Public Awareness, Acceptance &Trust. The IMA-Europe Safety Award actively supports the IMA-Europe Target Zero Injury initiative. The Award themes are linked to EU policy objectives, supporting notably the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials and the EU Biodiversity Strategy.

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 practices, ultimately benefitting the entire minerals sector. Each Award project merits, in our regard, public recognition. Behind every project, there is a real commitment in creating something of value, be it in terms of enhancing the natural environment or workplace conditions, offering innovative solutions, or building relations of trust with local communities. Behind every project is a dedicated project leader and its team. The Award projects tell their story. It is our wish that this year's award projects may enthuse and inspire others, and we look forward to receiving and promoting many further excellent initiatives in the future.
