A Webinar With Responsible Sourcing Network and Source Intelligence.
This webinar aired on October 12, 2017.
For the fourth consecutive year, RSN’s Mining the Disclosures report analyzes companies’ SEC conflict minerals filings following the requirements of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act. The 2017 edition dives deep into more than 200 high-profile companies, assessing 24 indicators from risk management capacities to reporting efforts and human rights impacts. For the first time, the report presents year-on-year comparisons per company, expanding stakeholder’s understanding of companies’ efforts to respond to supply chain and reputational risks.
Responsible Sourcing Network and Source Intelligence hosted a webinar to explore the findings of Mining the Disclosures 2017, to assess the strengths and weaknesses of companies’ reporting, and to analyze the changes over time. We summarized best practices by leading companies that produced robust disclosures regarding conflict minerals.
The webinar was led by Patricia Jurewicz, Founder and Director of Responsible Sourcing Network, Raphaël Deberdt, Lead Author of Mining the Disclosures 2017, and Jennifer Kraus, Chief Scientific Officer and EVP of Operations at Source Intelligence.
