50 NGO'S SIGN OPEN LETTER CALLING FOR RESPONSIBLE SOURCING THROUGH IRMA

50 NGOs including Greenpeace, EarthWorks, Global Witness and others signed an open letter to the World Bank stating that 'where sourcing from mining operations is absolutely necessary, purchasers must insist that those operations adhere to stringent international environmental and human rights best-practices standards (such as those developed by the multi-stakeholder Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance) with independent, third-party assurance of compliance.'

The letter was signed on the launch of the Climate Smart Mining initiative in Washington DC. The leaders also stated that an 'essential shift is necessary in order to keep global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees and avert the most disastrous impacts of climate change. And yet, even as new renewable energy infrastructure ramps up, we are concerned about the impacts of extracting minerals.'
