Fieldfisher’s presentation at the G7 Summit Fringe in Cornwall was underscored by an agreement by global leaders on the need to support electrification of energy, requiring investment in sustainable upstream minerals and metals supply.
European law firm Fieldfisher has released a new guide ‘Supplying responsibly: Towards a clean metals supply chain’, outlining how upstream suppliers of mineral and metals products can comply with new legislation on, and customer demand for, clean, conflict-free raw materials.
Recent legislative developments, such as the EU’s Conflict Minerals Regulation, track stakeholder demands for thorough supply chain due diligence showing products have been made using materials and processes that conform to the highest environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) standards.
The publication of Fieldfisher’s guide follows the firm’s presentation at the G7 Summit Fringe on 10 June 2021, hosted by Cornwall Trade and Investment, where the firm participated as a panellist in an event entitled ‘Invest in the future of mining’.
