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.
This book is the result of a four-year multi-stakeholder engagement process with multi-national companies, policy representatives, major think-tanks and civil society organisations, and included a comprehensive research endeavour covering innovative business cases as well as recent political developments. In doing so, it captures the immensely dynamic and fast-moving discourse on responsible sourcing in Europe and world-wide to drive change towards more equal cost-benefit sharing.
