RCS Global Group’s team of IT specialists and software engineers are the ideal partner for blockchain, traceability and platform solutions for responsibly-sourced raw materials.
RCS Global Group has developed a ground-breaking Hyperledger Fabric platform that allows auto and technology companies the ability to validate and generate consensus over the conditions of their supply chains. The platform provides instant, secure access to end-to-end asset provenance information, and supports improved collaboration with supply chain partners using blockchain technology.
RCS Global Group has vast experience designing and implementing bag & tag traceability solutions for the challenging upstream supply chain contexts with our proven traceability systems partners (such as GeoTraceability and DataBind).
Through global audit programs and Better Cobalt monitoring, RCS Global generates valuable high-quality supply chain data from the field that can be easily integrated with blockchain based systems. Our Systems Team can assist the data ontology process to ensure interoperability with industry guidelines.
IBM and RCS Global Group have co-developed a distributed platform for responsible supply chain actors. Hyperledger blockchain technology supports a digitized end-to-end trade platform that verifies responsible production from mine-to-market. The solution allows brands at the end of the supply chain to certify the minerals used in their products are free of human rights and other sourcing risks, with RCS Global Group acting as the central validator.
Better Sourcing is partnering with iPoint Solutions on the EPRM-funded SustainBlock project, where we are collaborating to develop innovative solutions to tokenize ASM material from the Great Lakes Region. We seek to prove that it is possible to use blockchain to provide additional value to mining communities while supporting upstream due diligence.
The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) published an RCS Global Group research paper on the opportunities and challenges of blockchain for the traceability of minerals.
