Financial support for certification

Has the company provided financial support for certification? Participation in the Public Private Alliance (PPA) would count for points; PPA is a step toward certification but not certification, as per the definition: certification as a multi-stakeholder process similar to the Kimberley and/or Forest Stewardship Council processes, which would be an international regime to trace, audit, and certify 3TG metals as being conflict-free.

About
For consumers to be able to purchase conflict-free electronics made with Congolese minerals, a certification scheme that builds upon the lessons of the Kimberley Process will be required. This would be aimed at setting up conflict-free mines in Congo that help communities. Donor governments and industry should provide financial and technical assistance to galvanize this process.
