2021 Forum on responsible mineral supply chains

Understanding the cost and value of responsible sourcing

Apr 28, 2021 | 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM


Ongoing discussions in multi-stakeholder forums have raised important questions on the perceived imbalance of how due diligence costs and benefits are distributed along the supply chain. This session will explore different cost-sharing models for carrying out supply chain due diligence, persistent pain points, and possibilities for redistributing costs in ways that appropriately recognise the value and benefits of due diligence. The session will use polls and firestarters to stimulate discussion.
