Response to Responsible-Investor Article Highlighting the Positive Impact of 1502 on Conflict Minerals
RSN Director Patricia Jurewicz, along with sustainable and responsible investors from Boston Common, Calvert, and Trillium penned an op-ed for Responsible-Investor magazine. In it they highlight the need to educate readers about the efficacy of the Dodd-Frank 1502 rule despite the measure of uncertainty created by a legal challenge to the rule.
The op-ed addresses how companies are currently complying with the law by implementing due diligence and reporting to the SEC, the precedent that the legislation is setting for mandatory disclosures related to human rights concerns, and the positive impact the law is having in the DRC and the Great Lakes Region of Central Africa.
