Conflict Minerals Leaders are Problem Solvers

Over 1,200 publicly traded companies are reporting their conflict minerals due diligence to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Yet, according to evaluations done by Responsible Sourcing Network (RSN), very few companies are doing what it takes to support responsible minerals sourcing and promote peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

This video first appeared on the Ethical Alliance Resource Centre.

Intel and Global Advanced Metals (GAM) are exemplary companies that prove that sourcing conflict-free minerals from the DRC can go hand in hand with profitability. These companies engage key stakeholders, promote wider adoption of due diligence tools, and take a proactive approach to risk mitigation. 

RSN partici[ated in a recent webinar hosted by ethiXbase; RSN, Intel, and GAM discussed some of the obstacles these leading companies have overcome on their path to conflict-free, and how they strengthened relationships with key actors in the supply chain.

Stream the webinar to learn more about how leading companies leverage conflict minerals compliance to improve the way they do business. Outcomes can be win-win-win when companies take a problem-solving approach to human rights risk.
