Philips - 7th Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains Philips - 7th Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains Presentation Transcript

  • 1 Philips joined the Conflict Free Tin Initiative (CFTI) in 2012 to create a demand for conflict-free tin from the DRC region. Building on existing due diligence mechanisms the CFTI has proven that responsible sourcing from the region is possible and contributes to much needed local economic development. 15 months after the start, the first end- products containing this conflict-free tin from Congo are now on the market. This is an important proof point, and should lower the barrier for initiating additional responsible sourcing initiatives that cover other minerals – including Tungsten - and additional mines as well. We are willing to support such initiatives that look for concrete solutions and create a market for conflict-free minerals from the region. Philips encourages companies along all tiers of the supply chain, and from different industries, to work together in creating a conflict-free supply chain.
