Conflict Minerals

 

Minerals are one of the resources in the Congo that are being exploited to partially fund ongoing conflict between armed militias in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo(DRC). The Minerals are abstract as Aluminum (chemical symbol: Al), Cobalt (Co), Copper (Cu), Gold (Au), Palladium (Pd) and Tin (Sn) . However, companies cannot alone bring about peace, increase regional governance, or ensure security in the region. All actors in the regions – the governments, industry, civil society, and the citizens themselves – have a role to play in bringing about lasting stability in the region. EICC and GeSI members use a portion of the world’s tantalum, a small proportion of tin and a lesser proportion of tungsten and gold in their products. Regardless of the amount of conflict minerals being used, EICC and GeSI members are concerned about the issue and are committed to taking action.
