European Partnership for Responsible Minerals

The European Partnership for Responsible Minerals is a multi-stakeholder partnership. It has been established in order to create better social and economic conditions for mine workers and local mining communities, by increasing the number of mines that adopt responsible mining practices in Conflict and High Risk Areas (CAHRAs).

Three critical changes in the supply system have to be achieved to enable responsible production of minerals in CAHRAs: there has to be assured demand (from downstream actors), there has to be a transparent supply line from mine to smelters (midstream), and mines have to be strengthened and enabled, technically and financially, to apply best practices in mining.

Call for proposals

The international coalition of the EPRM is developing the European Partnership for Responsible Minerals Fund to support activities within the scope of its mandate. That is, projects designed to improve conditions in and around mines and for the miners concerned in conflict-affected and high-risk areas.
