About

Companies should source their minerals responsibly and transparently. Having a publicly available policy setting out how it sources minerals responsibly is a sign that a company takes this issue seriously.

The trade in minerals has been linked to conflict and human rights abuses in countries such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, Afghanistan and Colombia. These minerals – sometimes called “conflict minerals” – are used in a wide variety of goods we use every day like smartphones, laptops and cars.

Methodology

Companies should make their Conflict Minerals Policy or Responsible Sourcing Policy easily accessible, so you may be able to find it using your preferred search engine to search for “[Company Name here] conflict minerals policy” or “[Company Name here] responsible sourcing policy”Companies may use another name for this policy – such as “conflict minerals sourcing policy” or “conflict minerals standard”. 

The policy will typically be available in PDF on a company's website. The policy may sometimes form part of a more general company policy (e.g., on supply chains) or may sometimes be included as a section within a company's "Conflict Minerals Report". A  “Conflict Minerals Report” is a report that certain companies are required to file on an annual basis under US law. You can find a company’s Conflict Minerals Report and more information about it through our metric.

If you can find a Conflict Minerals or Responsible Sourcing Policy for a company, set their value to “Yes” and add the source. Where applicable, you should also say whether the company has a stand-alone policy on Conflict Minerals or Responsible Sourcing, or whether it forms part of a more general company policy (for example, on supply chains). If the company's policy is not a stand-alone document but included within another document, you should set their value to "partial".

If you can't find a Conflict Minerals or Responsible Sourcing Policy for a company, you should set their value on this metric to “No”, and include some details of how/where you searched as a “Report” source.
