    最近,中国五矿化工进出口商会(CCCMC)发起了“责任钴业倡议”(英文简称RCI,以下简称“倡议”),倡议得到了经济合作与发展组织(OECD)的大力支持。目前,多家供应链上的企业正积极加入倡议,以采取联合行动,推动解决钴供应链上的社会和环境风险。倡议将优先推动解决最恶劣形式的童工问题。
    当前参与倡议工作的企业包括苹果公司(Apple Inc.)、北京当升材料科技股份有限公司、华为终端有限公司、惠普(HP Inc.)、索尼公司(Sony Corporation)、L&F、三星SDI(Samsung SDI)、天津巴莫科技股份有限公司以及浙江华友钴业股份有限公司。倡议成员将协力合作,在刚果(金)政府的协调下,研究制定未来12个月内采取的行动方案并予以实施。
    经济合作与发展组织利用其负责任矿业实施项目中形成的广泛的利益相关方网络,积极参与倡议工作。中国五矿化工进出口商会和经济合作与发展组织将继续积极同广大利益相关方保持接触,探讨合作。
责任钴业倡议有以下三大目标:
    第一,参加“倡议”的上下游企业认同《中国负责任矿产供应链尽责管理指南》和《经合组织受冲突影响和高风险地区矿物尽职调查指南》,确保企业供应链政策与指南要求保持一致,逐步提高供应链透明度,提升供应链治理能力;
    第二,推动与刚果(金)政府、民间组织及受影响的当地社区开展合作,采取行动和/或支持相关行动,共同应对解决钴供应链上的风险与挑战。
    第三,建立共同的沟通和传播策略,将工作进展和成果有效传递给受影响的社区、矿业企业以及公众,并与其他利益相关方就工作目标和计划进行协调。

    中国五矿化工进出口商会将积极搭建责任钴业倡议平台,呼吁钴价值链上下游参与者都能够直面挑战、承担责任、联合行动,最终实现共赢。

Facing challenges, sharing responsibility, joining hands and achieving win-win

Recently,
the Chinese Chamber of Commerce for Metals, Minerals & Chemicals (CCCMC) Importers & Exporters, with strong support from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), launched the Responsible Cobalt Initiative (RCI). A number of companies in the supply chain are participating in this initiative to undertake collective action in addressing social and environmental risks in the cobalt supply chain. As a priority, the RCI intends to address the issues of the worst forms of child labor.
Companies involved with the initiative currently include Apple Inc., Beijing Easpring Material Technology Co.,Ltd., HP Inc., Huawei Device Co.,Ltd., L&F, Samsung SDI, Sony Corporation, Tianjin B&M Science and Technology Joint-Stock Co., Ltd. and Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt Co., Ltd.. Companies will work together, in coordination with the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to develop and begin implementation of an action plan in the next 12 months.
The OECD is actively engaged in the initiative through its work with a broad coalition of stakeholders in the OECD Responsible Minerals implementation programme. CCCMC and the OECD will continue to engage with a broad range of stakeholders to explore further collaboration.
The Responsible Cobalt Initiative aims to:
•Have downstream and upstream companies recognize and align their supply chain policies with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas and the Chinese Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains in order to increase transparency in the cobalt supply chain and improve supply chain governance.
•Promote cooperation with the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, civil society, and affected local communities to take and/or support actions that address the risks and challenges in the cobalt supply chain.
•Develop a common communication strategy to communicate progress and results effectively to impacted communities, miners, and the public; to harmonize working objectives and plans with other stakeholders.
 
CCCMC will build a platform for the responsible cobalt initiative and calls on downstream and upstream companies of the cobalt value chain to face the challenges and shoulder responsibilities together, as well as take joint actions to achieve a win-win solution.
For further information, please contact Mr. Sun Lihui ( leoslh@126.com ), Director Responsible Business Conduct Unit, or Mr. Zhou Yangfan ( rickey523@163.com )
