The Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) has launched a pilot for the collection of due diligence information in the cobalt supply chain. RMI is an initiative involving more than 350 companies and associations helping companies in responsible mineral-sourcing. Using a newly created Cobalt Reporting Template (CRT), the goal is to evaluate its acceptance and use in the supply chain, collect data on cobalt refiners, cobalt supply chains and cobalt risk management practices.
The pilot phase will run from March 1st to August 31st, 2018 during which companies can use the tool available on the RMI website to submit data (see link below). Feedback will be collected and analyzed from September 1st to October 1st, 2018; the results will be shared at the RMI annual conference in November 2018.
