Internationally Sustainable Raw-Material Production & Supply


The STRADE team promotes an international stakeholder dialogue to develop an internationally accepted evaluation scheme, which would allow politicians, authorities and investors to transparently assess whether specific production sites operate at high, medium or poor sustainability levels. Using stakeholder dialogues, STRADE recommends approaches to successfully implement certification and due-diligence schemes along with the EU’s contribution in this process. It also discusses the global and institutional context of sustainable mining and explore the conceptual foundation of an International Resource Governance Alliance with the EU.
