RE-SOURCING - Make your case for Responsible Sourcing!

Created by the Vienna University of Economics and Business, together with 11 international partners, in response to the growing challenge of responsible sourcing in global mineral value chains.


The European Green Deal is the European Union's boldest ambition to tackle the growing threat of climate change and environmental degradation. In order to achieve a more sustainable and inclusive economy through the green technology transition, the sourcing of raw materials in global supply chains plays a decisive role. Responsible Sourcing is therefore becoming a reality for more and more businesses, NGOs, and policymakers alike. Everyone is striving to keep ahead of rapidly evolving ecological and social needs, company practices, business models, government regulations, and initiatives spearheaded by civil society, etc.
