14th OECD Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains - Side-event: Collaboration and benchmarking between good practice mining and metals standards to simplify responsible sourcing

Hosted by the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) & the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI)

Thursday 29th April, 3pm-4pm UK BST / 4-5pm CET 

To help mitigate risks in mineral value chains and to promote more responsible mining practices, a number of sustainability standards and norms have been developed such as the International Council on Mining and Metals’ (ICMM) Mining Principles and the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) Risk Readiness Assessment. Recognising that having multiple standards can make it difficult for interested stakeholders to understand how they compare, ICMM, RMI and other standard-owners will present how they are collaborating to develop equivalency tools which enable simplification, efficiency and transparency around good practice and standards, in support of enhanced due diligence and responsible sourcing.

This session will provide an overview of tools which are available to stakeholders and customers who are conducting due diligence in their supply chains, and provide an opportunity to discuss how these kinds of tools can support more effective and efficient responsible sourcing. 

Moderator: Leah Butler, Vice President of Responsible Sourcing, Responsible Business Alliance
