This report presents the findings of three different analyses: 1) A conformance analysis of ITRI’s Tin Supply Chain Initiative (iTSCi) against the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (OECD DDG). 2) A conformance analysis of the EICC and GeSI Conflict-Free Smelter Programme (CFS) against the OECD DDG, and 3) A compatibility analysis between the CFS and iTSCi.
All three approaches are aimed at inducing and supporting responsible mineral trading chains from high-risk regions, such as the Great Lakes Region (GLR).
