  • Companies operating in the oil, gas and mining sector spend as much as USD 1 trillion a year on the procurement of goods and services. Research published by the NRGI shows suppliers have played a part in corruption scandals and foreign bribery cases in at least 29 countries across five continents. While supplier contracts can be vulnerable to corruption, the scale of spending can also create opportunities for local companies and governments to derive economic benefit from extractives projects: 
  • Sourcing in conflict-affected and high-risk areas: using globally recognised frameworks – OECD Due Diligence Guidance, EITI, ICMM and World Gold Council - to mitigate sourcing risks. 
  • Stewardship of financial institutions in responsible sourcing: client due diligence, ESG metrics, and other measures that need to be undertaken to enhance responsible supply chains.
  • Can blockchain technology provide the basis for international cooperation on Conflict Minerals?
