Exploring ecosystem valuation to move towards net positive impact on biodiversity in the mining sector
Rio Tinto has a policy goal of net positive impact (NPI) on biodiversity in its operations. The company aims to achieve NPI by combining state-of-the-art avoidance, mitigation and ecosystem restoration with biodiversity offsets and other conservation actions. In Madagascar, as part of its offset strategy, the company is considering supporting the conservation of approximately 60,000 hectares of lowland rainforest, to compensate in part for the unavoidable residual impacts of its mining operations in the region. The area to be conserved and the resulting biodiversity benefits are expected to meet and possibly exceed the conservation gains required to compensate for the residual impacts of the mining operation.
