This chapter focuses on the role of the mining and metals industry and various countervailing powers, especially environmental groups, seeking to develop and influence public policy at the global level. It describes the belated engagement by this industrial sector with the global policy environment and its belated formation of a substantial industry association at this level. A comprehensive international non-governmental organization to represent the mining and metals industry was not formed until 200l. Named the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), this organization was limited in scope but succeeded in bringing together all the key participants in the global non-ferrous metals industry,and is playing an active role in policy development at the global level. The formation of ICMM came as part of the Global Mining Initiative (GMI), a private global policy initiative.
