RMI Investor Network

We are pleased to introduce the RMI Investor Network — a pivotal step in promoting responsible mining and mineral sourcing worldwide. Investors are invited to collaborate with the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) in shaping a sustainable, ethical future for global supply chains.

What is the RMI?

The RMI is the largest industry association in the minerals space working to address responsible mineral sourcing issues in industry supply chains. The RMI provides companies with a full ecosystem that includes due diligence tools and assurance and helps companies make responsible sourcing decisions to improve regulatory compliance and source all minerals responsibly including from conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRAs).

Why are investors interested in the RMI?

Investors play a crucial role in promoting responsible sourcing, but they need industry support. By joining forces with RMI members, investors can better understand industry efforts to implement due diligence, share their expectations with the industry, and align risk assessment approaches with industry best practices.

  • Material Insights: Gain ESG risk insights on more than 40 materials and components, a navigator tool for standards, a Materials Global Risk Map, and Mitigation Initiative mapping.
  • Risk Readiness Assessment (RRA): Evaluate investees’ alignment with 33 ESG criteria over time using a self-assessment tool aligned with RMI ESG standards.
