Responsible Sourcing


Recognising the increased demands for responsible sourcing and supply chain due diligence throughout the commodity value chain, Glencore published Supplier Standards in March 2019.  These Standards apply to any individual, organisation or company that provides, sells or leases materials directly to Glencore companies, including goods and services.  We intend supplier contracts to reference Glencore Supplier Standards.

As a cobalt producer and refiner, in addition to mining our own ore, we may also purchase third-party feed.  To strengthen our commitment to responsible sourcing and to support the commitment of our global cobalt customers, Murrin Murrin underwent a third-party audit against the Responsible Minerals Institute's (RMI) Pilot Cobalt Refiner Due Diligence Standard in November 2019.  Our conformance status with RMI Standards was assessed and verified and is publicly listed on the RMI Cobalt Refiners List.
