“NGO Ranks 155 Companies Across 20 Industries Revealing Significant Supply Chain, ESG Risks for Major Brands” – Responsible Sourcing Network – September 22, 2015

On September 22, 2015 Responsible Sourcing Network issued the report, “Mining the Disclosures 2015:  An Investor Guide to Conflict Minerals Reporting in Year Two.”

According to the Responsible Sourcing Network, “Mining the Disclosures 2015 is a deep analysis of corporate due diligence procedures that identify and address conflict minerals’ risks, human rights performance, and in-region impact. When companies increase their ability to trace the minerals of specific components back to the smelter level and beyond, and insist on sourcing conflict-free minerals from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), they are changing the status quo. Because of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, more companies are recognizing that the human rights of miners and local families cannot be separated from the use of these minerals.”
