Partner Sessions


by the German Environment Agency (UBA) and Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) Environmental issues and related risks in mineral supply chains have attracted increased attention by companies as well as by responsible sourcing initiatives. A new OECD Practical Tool shall therefore be developed to support implementation of environmental due diligence by companies. To kick-off a multi-stakeholder process this session will inform about the initiative, share perspectives from stakeholders and invite interested parties to contribute to the process. Inputs from OECD and Germany (UBA, BGR) as well as from Brazil, IUCN, UNEP and the Responsible Minerals Initiative will inspire the debate.
