What's next for conflict minerals compliance--and how can you ensure that your company is indeed compliant?
Gary Barraco, Vice President of Industry Development at ecVision, hosted a webinar focusing on ecVision's Conflict Minerals Compliance platform, which simplifies the due-dilligence reporting process while increasing traceability within the supply chain.
With the significant amount of work that goes into managing supply chain traceability for compliance, the result is often increased costs in time and effort. With rising pressure from government agencies and human rights groups, companies must collaborate with suppliers to get the required data.
The challenge for unearthing the answers on conflict minerals is due to the inefficiency and drain on production such a commitment has, therefore brands and retailers are finding it difficult to get their suppliers on-board with their conflict-free compliance program. As a result, nearly 99% of companies are non-compliant with the conflict minerals rule.
During the session, Gary demonstrates how this next-generation, low-cost solution takes the work out of tracing materials while providing brands and retailers the holistic visibility all the way down to their suppliers’ suppliers to establish full compliance.
