International Seabed Authority Annual Report 2020

Minerals are non-renewable resources (at least within human timeframes) but mining them is now apparently a sustainable enterprise, not a one-way street of exploitation. ISA provides an international and transparent forum to regulate and manage all mineral resources related activities and ensure protection of the marine environment in the “Area”, the deep seabed and subsoil beyond national jurisdiction, for the benefit of all humanity.

"Achieving the sustainable use of deep sea minerals for the benefit of humankind" - this annual report was produced by the International Seabed Authority (ISA), linking deep sea mining to sustainable development goals.
