Sustainability in Mining: an Application of Prométhée II

Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
This article deals with the use of a Multicriteria Decision Aiding method in the evaluation of environmental sustainability. Environmental indicators related to sustainable development require interconnected systems to provide a progress evaluation within a development context for a country, a region, a community or an industrial sector of the economy. The focus of this article is the evaluation process that involves the main players in the mining and metallurgy industries, based on the principles of the Global Report Initiative (GRI). The use of multicriteria analysis aims to offer stakeholders, in particular risk agencies and investment funds, a structured approach to the environmental performance of the mining sector. In this article it is shown how that approach can be put into practice by using the PROMÉTHÉE II method of Multi- -Criteria Decision Aiding, providing a more global and transparent result. The selection of some specific indicators led to capturing potential problems in a clear and concise way. The multi-criteria evaluation study presented in this article can be complemented in the future by considering the other environmental indicators of the GRI, even those of a qualitative nature as described by specific actions of environmental management.
