• Digital Sustainability Group of DIGITALEUROPE Attends OECD Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains

    12 May 2017On 2 and 3 May 2017, a delegation of the DIGITALEUROPE’s Digital Sustainability group travelled to Paris to attend the 11th ICGLR-OECD-UN GoE Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains.

    Since 2011, the OECD, the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR), as well as the UN Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of Congo have been jointly organizing the expert forum on responsible mineral supply chains.

    This year’s meeting focused on conformance with and implementation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas as well as other initiatives to facilitate responsible mineral supply chains. The Forum was opened by European Commissioner for Trade Malmström, who delivered a keynote speech.

    The forum was an opportunity for DIGITALEUROPE to meet with a number of stakeholders in the margins of the meeting to exchange views on the topic of responsible mineral supply chains.
