Do you want to better evaluate the ethical code of companies in which you invest? Boundless Impact Investing will be hosting, ‘Conflict Minerals: Can Due Diligence End Bloodshed?’ on January 15th, 2019 at 2 pm EDT. During this webinar, we will explore the potential of sustainable supply chain compliance and investing to mitigate warfare and conflicts surrounding mineral extraction.
Conflict minerals are natural resources extracted in conflict zones and used to perpetuate violent hostilities. They include coltan, cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold and wolframite, and are found in everything from electric cars and gaming systems to ammunition and amour-piercing rounds. Learn about mineral-sourcing frameworks, best sourcing practices, evaluating company efforts, and the adequacy of current investor due diligence. Additionally, learn how to use 3rd party evaluations, SEC reporting, multi-stakeholder initiatives, and sustainability reports to ask the right questions and to direct investments into companies with robust and ethical mineral procurement standards.
