Responsible Sourcing - Introductory Training Module

Wednesday, August 07, 2019

Introductory training module, developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI), LBMA and Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), focussed on the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.


The brief module introduces the OECD Guidance, including practical approaches to implementing the 5-Step Framework to mineral supply chain due diligence. It outlines the purpose of due diligence, describes each of the five steps, and identifies the relevant tools and programmes offered by the LBMA, RMI, and RJC, that companies can utilise to support their responsible sourcing efforts. It is recommended for any entity linked to the minerals trade, from mine, to end user, as well as to auditors, auditees, governments, civil society and other key stakeholders.

The training module is also available in an interactive LMS format, with questions embedded in the video and a set of multiple choice questions at the end to test audience understanding of the subject. The module is available on the RMI’s eLearning Academy. The RMI eLearning Academy is free and open to all. Please email to register.
