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.
Based on the concepts of planetary boundaries and strong sustainability as well as environmental justice considerations, the RE-SOURCING project has developed a Vision for the Electronics and Electronical Equipment Sector.
This Vision contains essential considerations regarding full respect for and protection of human rights, protection of the environment, including remaining within planetary boundaries, the global eradication of poverty and a significant reduction in inequality, including a minimum social foundation and a fair distribution of costs and benefits along the supply chain. But how do we get there? This document summarises the core targets for the pathway for this sector.
