March 16, 2022

Russian 3TG in the Supply Chain

Time: 10am and 2pm EST
Duration: 1 hour plus Q&A
Claigan Environmental Inc. will present a webinar on the changes surrounding conflict minerals compliance in 2022 and beyond. This webinar will discuss how to maintain compliance with Dodd-Frank as well as adapt to customer pressure from the changing geopolitical landscape.
The most important issue in the ethical sourcing of minerals in 2022 will be how to handle Russian sources of minerals in the supply chain. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has caused many companies to cut ties with business in Russia. Smelter lists are publicly available when companies file their Conflict Minerals Report. This webinar will discuss solutions for how to handle this sudden, new pressure.
Beyond sourcing conflict minerals from Russian, this webinar will also discuss utilizing similar strategies for identifying and removing Uighur forced labour from the mineral supply chain. Furthermore, there are new gold refiners with recent allegations of sourcing smuggled gold from the DRC. The webinar will conclude with a brief look at current and upcoming changes including cobalt, mica, copper, etc.
The main topics to be covered in this webinar are –
  • Internal/external pressures related to Russian 3TG
  • Russian gold imports/exports
  • Strategies for removing smelters from the supply chain
  • Recent allegations of smelters sourcing smuggled gold from the DRC
  • Smelters connected to mines in Xinjiang
  • Looking ahead to cobalt, mica, copper, and other metals

Due to the interest in these topics, two (2) webinars will be held on March 16 to accommodate a larger audience.
