The Responsible Minerals Initiative holds an annual conference in conjunction with the RBA's Responsible Electronics meeting. This event brings together representatives of industry, government and civil society for updates, in-depth discussions and guidance on best practices to help companies make informed choices about responsibly sourced minerals in their supply chains. In addition, RMI hosts a Seminar Series on current topics and offers various webinars throughout the year.


RMI Responsible Sourcing Summit

The Responsible Minerals Initiative will hold a Responsible Sourcing Summit on January 31, 2019 in Berlin, Germany. This FREE event is geared toward RBA and RMI members, non-member companies, and stakeholders including government representatives, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations. However, space is limited so you must register in advance.

The Summit will focus on practical steps to conduct due diligence in mineral supply chains to help companies meet regulatory requirements and align with company best practices on emerging issues. This meeting will present concrete and current examples of how practical tools are being developed and used throughout the supply chain to drive consistent and progressive messaging from downstream buyers on cobalt specifically as well as other materials. Companies, practitioners and stakeholders will share their recommendations on how aligned collective approaches, supplier communication and capacity-building, and progressive goal-setting moves the needle on responsible mineral sourcing.

Please view the full agenda and register here. If you have any questions about this event, please contact Laura Landrau.
