Company Conflict Mineral Reporting and Activities
With the inaugural round of conflict minerals disclosure reports submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Responsible Sourcing Network and a coalition of NGOs and sustainable and responsible investors have released a list of criteria to assist in evaluating the reports. Expectations Shortlist: Company Conflict Mineral Reporting and Activities features information that stakeholders expect to see in the SEC filings, on the issuers’ websites, or in sustainability reports.
In 2013, together with the Enough Project, RSN released a white paper, Expectations for Companies’ Conflict Minerals Reporting. The new Expectations Shortlist offers more guidance to companies in order to advance and improve the hopes of advancing corporate due diligence activities and improving the scope and quality of information that will be disclosed in future reports.
