Bringing together the supply chain for a fair cobalt sector and thriving ASM communities

Panel

Information

SESSION IN ENGLISH

Artisanal cobalt mining is only ever associated with negative impacts on ASM communities. Fair Cobalt Alliance challenges this overly simple perspective of cobalt mining in the DRC. Through collaboration, ASM can become a potent driver for development, turning mineral endowments into long-term prosperity for mining communities. Our panelists discuss how – when we engage and invest in ASM communities – ASM can become an opportunity and a driver for change. By coming together as a supply chain, we will achieve fair and responsible ASM cobalt supply.  

Join this panel session to learn more about the FCA and discover how your company can collaborate for greater impact.
