In 2020, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) launched a project to develop a methodology to evaluate the extent to which companies embrace the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, including how they align with its core elements, the 5-Step framework and the Annex II Model Policy. This metric belongs to that methodology.

The OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (OECD Guidance) was developed to provide recommendations to help companies respect human rights and avoid contributing to conflict through their mineral purchasing decisions and practices. The OECD Guidance is for use by any company potentially sourcing minerals or metals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas.
Methodology

This question is looking to understand the company's management structure and responsibilities allocated to minerals due diligence and sourcing.

A 'Yes' answer can include any kind of description of the individuals, departments or teams in charge of responsible minerals sourcing, and/or involvment of executives in such.

If the management structure is not described in relevant reports, the answer will be 'No'.

The answer will only be 'Unknown' if the company has no reporting for a particular year.
