Petition calls on UK Govt. to support binding measures for EU conflict minerals regulation
Author: London Mining Network; Stop Mad Mining Project, Published on: 27 October 2015
The EU has a landmark opportunity to ensure that companies bringing minerals into Europe check their supply chains, to make sure that the minerals they buy from fragile and conflict areas don’t fund violence. Sign the petition to make sure the UK supports strong and binding regulation!...Member States must match the Parliament’s commitment to responsible sourcing, by supporting binding requirements that could have a real and positive impact on the trade in minerals, and on the violence and harm associated with mining in some of the world’s poorest areas. Thus far, the UK has not supported a binding regulation to tackle the conflict minerals trade. Add your name to those calling for the UK to get behind this critical piece of legislation.
