[Webinar]Creating Positive Impacts in Artisanal & Small-Scale Congo Cobalt Mines
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is the world’s largest cobalt supplier, but many of the region’s artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) operations are controlled by armed groups and use child labor. To mitigate supply chain risks, companies are avoiding cobalt purchased from independent miners — a reaction that may cause more harm than good to both the region and industry.
