    EPRM Members Meeting at Umicore

    In December 2019, EPRM organized its second members meeting– a full day at precious metals recycling plant Umicore.

    During this members meeting we have learned more about the hosting company Umicore, the ins and outs of the working groups, the progress made by the working groups and EPRM’s plans for 2020. In addition, each pillar discussed in their own break-out session the rotation of governance Board positions, and their expectations and plans for next year.

    One of the highlights of this EPRM members meeting were the presentations of two EPRM funded projects. Project implementers Benjamin Claire (BetterChain) and Don Bwesigye Binyina (African Centre for Energy and Mining Policy) provided us a better insight in the projects Consolidated Autonomous Due Diligence and Promoting Responsible Mineral Supply Chains of Designated Conflict Minerals in Uganda respectively. We have been able to learn more about the objectives, achievements and lessons learned and are curious about their future progress on responsible mining.

    We are looking forward to the coming EPRM members meeting at the OECD Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains in Paris.
