About

One way that a company could comply with the Dodd-Frank Act is to avoid sourcing from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining/covered countries entirely. We regard this as a problematic approach because it has a damaging effect on the economy of the region. Ideally companies would still source from this region but take care not to source from smelters/refiners that buy raw materials from armed groups.

Methodology

Identify if the company avoids sourcing from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining/covered countries entirely. 

  • If the company states that none of the minerals in their supply chain originate in the DRC or adjoining/covered countries/region, or they provide a list of  country origins that doesn't include the above, their value should be Yes.
  • If the company states that minerals in their supply chain originate in the DRC or adjoining/covered countries/region, their value should be No.
