How can my company be more involved in addressing conflict minerals issues?
Participation in the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) or other equivalent industry initiative is an effective way to contribute to the efforts addressing conflict minerals issues. The CFSI is one of the most utilized and respected resources for companies addressing conflict minerals issues. The CFSI provides information on CFSP-complaint SORs, common tools to gather sourcing information and forums for exchanging best practices on addressing conflict minerals. These resources are key to assisting companies to source minerals responsibly and help companies to comply with the regulatory requirements under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
There are several other programs where companies can be more involved. For more information on these programs please visit the following websites:
