Responsible Sourcing in Mineral Supply Chains is a process where duty-bearers ensure policies, processes and compliance mechanisms exist to deliver the environmental, social, and economic rights, as prioritised by stakeholders who are impacted by the activities within a mineral supply chain.

The European Green Deal is the European Union’s bold ambition to tackle the growing threat of climate change and environmental degradation. We need to ensure that the extensive global sourcing and consumption of raw materials required for the green transition is based on sustainability principles & practices.
RE-SOURCING is an EU-funded Multi-Stakeholder Platform that aims to advance Responsible Sourcing of raw materials along and across global mineral value chains. It strives to promote both strategic agenda setting and coherent application of practices for Responsible Sourcing.
Over the course of the past four years, RE-SOURCING developed visions & roadmaps for the three key sectors of Renewable Energy, Mobility and Electric & Electronic Equipment. These roadmaps outline a path to a sustainable transition for industry actors, policy makers and civil society organisations to implement Responsible Sourcing practices in global mineral value chains.
The Good Practice Guidance for Responsible Sourcing presents best practice guidelines for responsible sourcing in the three sectors covered by the RE-SOURCING project (Mobility, Electronics, Renewable Energy) in a condensed form for public and private sector stakeholders. These recommendations, guidelines and best practice examples are based on a series of workshops conducted with policy, business and civil society stakeholders over the three years of the project. This synthesis report extracts the key elements and recommendations of the selected good practices shared in the sector guidelines, decontextualises and condenses them to enable cross-sectoral good practice learning.
