European industry urgently needs minerals and metals to increase productivity, meet green technology demands and remain globally competitive. Despite initial concerns about non-compliance with EU ESG standards due to less oversight, the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector is now coming into focus as a supplier for the EU’s green and digital transition to meet growing demand and global competition.
Numerous private and public sector initiatives in recent years have significantly improved the way the sector operates, and there are many case studies demonstrating the reliability of the small-scale mining sector as a supplier, even under strict ESG import regulations.
On October 24th, the Re-SOURCING project is hosting a free webinar and networking event to discuss how to responsibly source from small-scale and artisanal mining together with a diverse panel of policymakers, representatives of ASM communities, consultants with on-the-ground experience and industry representatives.
From Mine to Market: Enabling Responsible ASM Practices and demonstrating linkages to EU Producers through Digital Traceability
The RE-SOURCING project has invited RCS Global’s Digital Solutions and Better Mining colleagues to share their expertise and experiences. Under the headline, From Mine to Market: Enabling Responsible ASM Practices and demonstrating linkages to EU Producers through Digital Traceability, our head of Better Mining, Emmanuel Ngueyanouba, will be talking about Better Mining’s work of continuously improving responsible mineral sourcing and ethical practices in ASM in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Rwanda. Head of Digital Solutions, Iain Fraser, will further talk about how ASM links to the European market and the critical role of traceability.
We hope to see you there.
