RE-SOURCING is an EU-funded multi-stakeholder platform that aims to advance responsible sourcing of raw materials along and across global mineral value chains. The project is developing visions and roadmaps for responsible sourcing of minerals in three sectors: Renewable Energy, Mobility and Electric & Electronic Equipment.
Implemented by a large international consortium of 12 partners from 9 countries, coordinated by WU Vienna University of Economics and Business, RE-SOURCING strives to promote both strategic agenda setting and coherent application of practices for responsible sourcing.
DURATION: 2019 – 2023
SCOPE: Europe, Latin America, South-Saharan Africa, Asia-Pacific
FOCUS AREA: Resource Extraction
FUNDED BY: European Union Horizon 2020 Programme
The Roadmap 2050 and Good Practice Guidance for the renewable energy sector provide concrete recommendations and practices for policy makers, businesses and civil society to implement and achieve responsible sourcing across five main areas:
- Circular economy & decreased resource consumption
- Paris Agreement & environmental sustainability
- Social sustainability & responsible production
- Responsible Procurement
- Level playing field
