Indonesia Tin Working Group

  • 95

Summary


Launched in 2014, the TWG works with downstream companies, midstream processors, local tin producers, civil society, industry associations, and the central and regional Indonesian government. Through the TWG, companies are contributing to the development of responsible tin mining in Indonesia via direct engagement with government and local stakeholders, providing support to their supply chain partners, and setting supply chain expectations for responsibly produced tin.

Phase I (2014-2017) was led by the Sustainable Trade Initiative IDH as the international convener. This current Phase II (2017-2019) of the TWG will be led by the RBA's Responsible Minerals Initiative.

The TWG will build on the efforts and achievements of Phase I and continue the engagement with local as well as international stakeholders. The TWG will support pilot project activities for land reclamation as well as occupational health and safety (OHS) capacity building. Throughout this process, the TWG will seek to demonstrate the business case for responsible tin mining practices so as to enable Indonesian tin producers to obtain support from local and national government, industry partners, donors and socially responsible investors to implement and scale on-the-ground projects.
