Remaining conflict-free from the mine to the finished product
Tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold in the war-torn Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo are sometimes exploited by armed groups to fund their illegal activities. Some of these “conflict minerals” may make their way into consumer products, from components in electronics to jewellery. With tightening regulations around conflict minerals and increasing investor expectations around traceability, it is vital for organisations to ensure that they achieve a conflict-free supply chain – from the mine to the finished product.
This webcast will address:
- Why a strong conflict minerals program is necessary for your business
- What an advanced conflict minerals programme looks like
- Leading best practices on engaging your supply chain
