Advancing responsible sourcing
in mineral value chains
To facilitate the understanding and uptake of responsible sourcing practices in the mineral value chain, the project provides detailed reports for the three key sectors (Renewable Energy, Mobility and Electric & Electronic Equipment). Other important issues are addressed through a series of Briefing Documents.
This page also includes links to videos where industry and sector experts discuss issues around responsible sourcing and the role of various stakeholders and actors. These videos and many more can be found on our Youtube channel here.
The Opening Conference ‘Drivers of Responsible Sourcing’ focused on four essential aspects for moving towards the responsible sourcing of raw minerals: Advocacy & Awareness; Industry Frontrunners & Business Alliances; Regulations & Standards; and Investment & Stock and Commodity Markets. This conference report summarises the main points that were brought forward during the six sessions of the conference, including keynote speeches and panel discussions. You can also find more information and detailed summaries of the individual topics in the RE-SOURCING Briefing Documents 5-8.
