Abstract: In this information sheet for responsible investors, SOMO outlines the priorities from an NGO perspective on the issue of conflict minerals. In particular, we will focus on the need for the European Commission to develop legislation to curb the mineral trade that contributes to armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and elsewhere. Responsible investors can play a decisive role in encouraging law-makers to take concrete measures by making their opinions known.
