Published 07 December 2021

TDi Sustainability, in collaboration with IMOA, recently published ‘Molybdenum profile for supply chain due diligence and responsible sourcing’.

The paper provides materials’ specifiers, standards-setters such as CopperMark and ResponsibleSteel, steelmakers, manufacturers, and civil society organizations with a clear understanding of the molybdenum supply chain as pertains to environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters. It reports on the ESG implications for industry participants and the current responsible sourcing standards, certifications and initiatives that are applicable to molybdenum.

Assheton Carter, CEO of TDi Sustainability, said: “Given the increasing scrutiny around environmental, social and governance implications of heavy industrial activities, particularly those involving large-scale mining, this paper provides timely and practical guidance on voluntary standards for everyone involved in the molybdenum supply chain. We are pleased to have applied our expertise in responsible sourcing and ESG issues to provide support to organisations across the steel and wider non-ferrous metals industry with their decision-making.”

IMOA’s Secretary General Eva Model commented: “This paper is an important part of the molybdenum industry’s objective to ensure responsible sourcing is embedded across the global supply chain. It reflects the significance the industry places on being open and transparent about the way molybdenum is mined, produced, and used, and on operating responsibly at all these levels. The guidance in this paper will be hugely beneficial in helping the molybdenum supply chain make informed decisions to meet its ESG objectives.”
