Trends in Stakeholder Reporting: Mineral Supply Chains
Fantastic to collaborate with the Business and finance at the OECD on researching and writing this latest paper on trends in public stakeholder reports for mineral supply chains – looking at who is publishing on issues and impact on which materials and where.
‘Deep-Sea Minerals: Why Manufacturers and Markets Should Engage Now’ has been published by the World Economic Forum, written by the team at TDi Sustainability. The paper is the second in a series of three briefing papers for the Deep-Sea Minerals Dialogue, which aims to engage manufacturers that have metals in their supply chain and the market exchanges that trade them. The Dialogue is impartial and aims to inform these businesses of the importance of the topic, their stake in decisions about deep-sea mineral development, the opportunity to engage and to formulate a plan of action.
In line with their commitment to ensure their products positively contribute to people and planet, Swarovski commissioned TDI to support the brand in establishing a stakeholder engagement program and a fully transparent, responsible supply chain for Swarovski Genuine Gemstones; one that most benefits the communities unearthing these shining natural wonders.Read More
