Session 2: Transparency and accountability in mineral supply chains.
Corruption lies at the intersection and is an enabler of many risks of adverse impacts linked to mineral extraction and trade: serious human rights abuses, conflict financing and other financial crimes, as well as environmental crimes.

Over the last years, several initiatives have been developed to help companies combat bribery and corruption in mineral supply chains. The OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals, adopted in 2011, proposes a set of recommendations to identify and mitigate these risks, including risk of corruption. Even though environmental adverse impacts are not mentioned explicitly as one of the risks covered by the Guidance, the due diligence steps outlined in the Guidance can be applied to a broader set of adverse impacts, including those linked to the environment.

The session will aim to look at corruption in award of mineral rights and permits for large-scale mining, as well as corruption risks in artisanal and small-scale mining, and how can companies throughout the supply chain identify and mitigate this risk.
