Chinese Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains

The objective of the Chinese Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains is to operationalize and provide detail to Clause 2.4.6 of the CCCMC Guidelines for Social Responsibility in Outbound Mining Investments by providing guidance and support  to companies which are extracting and/or using mineral resources and their related products and are engaged at any point in the supply chain of minerals to identify, prevent and mitigate their risks of directly or indirectly contributing to conflict, serious human rights abuses and risks of serious misconduct.
The Chinese Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains use the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD Due Diligence Guidance on Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas as their basis, and aims to promote the integration and coordination with other related standards, regulations and initiatives.
