Microsoft, Tiffany & Co Lead Global Agreement on Responsible Industrial-Scale Mining  | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

With growing awareness and demand for ecologically and socially responsible products, jewelers, electronics makers, the auto industry and others have sought assurance that minerals they purchase are mined responsibly. The standard seeks to emulate for industrial-scale mine sites what has been done with certification programs in agriculture, forestry and seafood. An online Responsible Mining Map was also launched. 

EcoVadis's insight:

With the help of the online Responsible Mining Map, responsible producers and purchasers of minerals will be able to demonstrate their commitment to a more responsible minerals value chain and make contact to enable business relationships to develop.
