Freeport Cobalt adheres to Freeport-McMoRan policies as well as the Organisation for Economic and Co-operation Development Guidelines for Responsible Supply Chain of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas. Our corporate policies align with the International Council on Mining and Metals Sustainable Development Principles and include our Principles of Business Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct as well as numerous Sustainability policies and programs, such as Health and Safety, Environmental, Community, and other relevant programs.
Our Human Rights policy outlines our commitment to respecting human rights and requires us to conduct business in a manner consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
Freeport Cobalt is recognized as a Conformant Cobalt Refiner by the Responsible Minerals Initiative for our ethical processing of responsibly sourced minerals. This recognition is assurance that our cobalt sourcing aligns with OECD Guidelines and allows our customers to comfortably rely on our products. It also provides an opportunity for our customers to extend this chain of responsibility downstream to the final consumer product.
Our conformance with RMI Standards and OECD Guidelines was assessed and verified by independent third-party auditors as part of RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process. Our conformance status is publicly listed in the RMI website.
