The TDI Team hopes to see you in Paris
The 2018 Forum will provide the opportunity to review and discuss implementation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Minerals and other initiatives to enable responsible mineral production and sourcing. More than 700 stakeholders will come together to discuss drivers for responsible sourcing across various minerals, alignment of industry programmes, the OECD portal for supply chain risk information, government monitoring of Guidance uptake and promotion, company risk mitigation and reporting, the role of commodity traders and country-level implementation progress in India, Europe and West Africa.
We have been the technical lead in developing several initiatives which will be under discussion at the Forum this year.
