Canada - GNMR Europe meets with Canada on Conflict Minerals

(Nov-2014)

Fulfilling a long standing commitment, GNMR-Europe (Jesuit European Social Centre-Brussels; ALBOAN-Bilbao; and Jesuit Missions-London) met with Canadian Jesuits International (CJI) and Dr Fernando Serrano from St. Louis, USA in Toronto on 20th and 21st October. The central concern of the meeting was 'conflict minerals' - tin, tungsten and tantalum, the three Ts, and gold - and the steps being taken to regulate them in the US and Europe. The team met with a number of Canadian civil society organisations exploring different ways of making Canadian extractive companies accountable for their actions and to make companies and governments set up systems to monitor supply chains to ensure that conflict minerals are not fraudulently labelled as 'conflict free'.
