Advancing responsible sourcing
in mineral value chains
Together, the Roadmap 2050 and the Good Practice Guidance for the Mobility Sector, provide concrete recommendations and practices for policy makers, industry and civil society to implement and achieve Responsible Sourcing.
The Roadmap is based on the State of Play report for Mobility, which emphasises various impacts and challenges in the resource extraction of lithium, cobalt, nickel and graphite, as well as in the value chain of lithium-ion batteries and their recycling.
The following three main areas identifies and addressed in the Roadmap in Mobility are:
The Roadmap and Guidance document on Mobility Sector address issues such as significant environmental impacts, human rights violations, lack of commitment to fair wages and workers’ rights, as well as conflicts with local populations and give a clear idea which steps need to be taken to mitigate their effects.
Both reports are developed through a co-creative and consultative multi-stakeholder process. The results have been co-designed at the Mobility Roadmap Workshop for a brainstorming with external actors and the Flagship Lab respectively and discussed with the project team, project’s Platform Steering Committee and Advisory Board.
In addition, the Roadmap development was based on consultations with webinars and interviews with experts from different stakeholder groups and regions. This led to the identification of necessary points of actions and the establishment of recommendations.
