UWA - Research Mineral Sourcing Practices

UWA - Research Mineral Sourcing Practices

Description

Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act introduced a legal requirement for companies that file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to report on their due diligence to ensure that their sourcing of certain minerals does not fund armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The publication of such reports represents an opportunity to increase corporate transparency, but to validate and realise this potential, the reports must be analysed.

We have defined a set of questions about how companies that produce electronic goods source the minerals required to produce those goods, and created metrics (on the right) to record the answers to those questions. To contribute to this project, choose a company from the list on the bottom-right of this page, click through to the research page for that company, and try to find the answers to each question in their Conflict Minerals Report(s).

Each metric has a methodology section which explains how the answer for a company should be determined and includes tips for finding answers quickly.

Please include comments that support the answers you’re adding (e.g. by quoting from the source or explaining your reasoning). Good comments are very useful when checking answers or refining metrics.

Check out the following example company to see how the project organisers have researched these metrics:
