Identify Cobalt Sourced from High-Risk Smelters

Through automated technology and human-to-human supplier engagement, the cobalt used in your products is traced to the smelter of origin. The collected smelter data is verified against our internal database as well as various publicly available data sources. Red flags are raised where missing or inconsistent data is identified. As a result, you’ll be able to do a deep dive into your suppliers’ responses and pinpoint areas of risk in your supply chain that lead to unethically sourced cobalt.

Are There Regulations on Cobalt?

Current estimates show that 50 percent or more of the world’s cobalt production derives from mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Substandard cobalt mining conditions in the Congo have been tied to deaths, human rights abuse and a wide variety of unethical sourcing practices. Although cobalt is not yet officially tied to regulations, many governments will start investigations and fine companies for using raw materials that are tied to human rights violations.
Automate Your Cobalt Reporting
Our Cobalt Reporting Program tracks the origin of the cobalt in your products to the smelter. We follow and are in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence and the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) to provide real-time data and mitigate risks. Our 24/7 multilingual supplier support team makes it easy for your suppliers to provide the documentation needed and actively increases response rate.
