Responsible Raw Materials 2021 Conference: ESG Toolbox
Updated: Jul 13
On Monday 10th to Friday 14th May 2021, Responsible Raw Materials hosted their 2021 annual conference on the ESG Toolbox for Responsible Sourcing; with experts and thought leaders from across the full value chain of raw materials, including miners, bankers, NGOs, local communities, governments and academia, sharing their tools and techniques on how and why it is important to factor sustainability and ESG into decision-making.
(Hint: if your company doesn't do it already, you are at a major strategic disadvantage compared to your peers!)
The talks from the conference form the ESG Toolbox for Responsible Sourcing and are summarised in the above infographic; all of these topics were recorded and are freely available on the Responsible Raw Materials website. The purpose of this content is to generate dialogue and provide mechanisms to ensure we explore for, extract, process, sell and reuse our raw materials in the most responsible way possible. The infographic has been used by teachers and lecturers globally and is freely available to download (please reference "www.responsiblerawmaterials.com" if you use it).
