Transforming lives through technology.
Minerals are fundamental for today’s modern society. They are in all electronics, from smartphones to electric cars.
Technology companies are under pressure from consumers, regulators and legislation to prove minerals are sourced responsibly. But the minerals which are driving our clean tech transition go through an opaque and outdated value chain. This risks funding conflict and child labour, while African countries are losing more in mineral tax evasion than they gain in foreign aid.
It is the most unsophisticated $100bn market in the world.
But now advances in technology also give us an opportunity to reshape this sector, from the moment a mineral comes out of the ground, tracing its journey into our consumer goods.
1 in 8 people in sub-Saharan African countries are dependent upon artisanal mining.
Minerals from artisanal sources:

30% of cobalt
50% of tantalum
80% of coloured gemstones
