How can my company be more involved in addressing responsibly sourced minerals issues?
Participation in the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) or other equivalent industry initiative is an effective way to contribute to efforts addressing responsibly sourced minerals issues. The RMI is one of the most utilized and respected resources for companies to conduct due diligence on their minerals sourcing. The RMI provides information on RMAP-conformant SORs, common tools to gather sourcing information and forums for exchanging best practices on addressing responsibly sourced minerals. These resources are key to assisting companies to source minerals responsibly and help companies to comply with the regulatory requirements under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
There are several other programs where companies can be more involved. For more information on these programs please visit the following websites:
