New Year’s is a time to make resolutions to commit to actions that improve the world around us. Intel spoke with industry leaders, student groups, and other advocates to see what they’re planning to do in 2015 to keep consumer products conflict-free. Patricia Jurewicz, Director of Responsible Sourcing Network, offers her resolutions to help rid global supply chains of conflict minerals.
- I resolve to investigate and report on the quality of companies’ conflict minerals disclosures to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in promoting transparency and accountability in supply chains.
- I will encourage companies beyond the electronics industry to join the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) and the Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG), and support the Audit Committee of the International Conference of the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) in establishing credible mine audit systems and verifying an increased amount of conflict-free mines.
