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 Member Meeting
For 2021, we have elected not to host the RMI Annual Conference in its traditional, multi-day format but will instead spread the content over smaller, regional outreach meetings during the remainder of the year. We hope to return to our normal, in-person annual conferences in 2022.
We look forward to seeing RMI members during the 2021 RMI Annual Member Meeting on October 20. Due to ongoing concerns related to the global health pandemic, and out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our members, we have decided to move the RMI Annual Member Meeting from a hybrid format (in-person + virtual) to a purely virtual format. In addition, to accommodate additional attendees across as many time zones as possible, we will also be changing the start times from Pacific to Eastern time. Please register and access the agenda using the links below.
The keynote speaker for the 2021 RMI Member Meeting will be Vicky Bowman, Director of Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business (MCRB). Ms. Bowman is a former UK ambassador to Myanmar and a member of Cabinet for the EU Commissioner. She also led policy work at a mining company Rio Tinto, before her current role. Ms. Bowman will address RMI and RBA members on minerals sourcing from high-risk areas, sharing lessons from Myanmar.
