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.
RE-SOURCING is developing visions & roadmaps for the three key sectors of Renewable Energy, Mobility and Electric & Electronic Equipment. We support a sustainable transition based on environmentally friendly, socially equitable and economically profitable sourcing in global mineral value chains.
The good practice guidelines on responsible sourcing (RS) in the mobility sector outline outstanding key practices distilled from the RE-SOURCING Project’s research and consultations on the mobility sector.
To promote peer learning and increase the uptake of RS practices, this document is of relevance to all actors involved in the mobility sector, especially for lithium-ion batteries, in the EU as well as internationally. Four good practice guidelines are elaborated in this document, with case studies to show how they have been implemented.
