The Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA) is a voluntary certification system for large-scale mining which seeks to bring transparency to the mining sector and forward more responsible practices at the mine site. IRMA is unique in that it brings together nonprofits, communities and labor unions working alongside consumer-facing brands and mining companies to collaborate on defining what it means to mine responsibly and to govern a system for independent verification of a mine’s practices.
