CAMPAIGN: Conflict Minerals

CONTENT: Article

The 11th hour is here. Thousands of companies in retail, consumer products, electronics, automotive and other impacted industries are making decisions to tackle the issue of conflict minerals within their supply chain now that the first reporting year, which began January 1, 2013, is in full swing. 

Because of the legal and financial significance of the SEC's Dodd-Frank Section 1502 due diligence and reporting requirements for conflict minerals, management across multiple industries are recommending conflict minerals compliance solutions that are sure to get Board Level attention.

The bottom line? Recommendations need to include an “all-in” cost of conflict minerals compliance for the company BEFORE presentations go to Senior Management and the Board.

Get the facts, Source Intelligence®, the leading provider of conflict minerals compliance solutions is offering a free "video-on-demand" webinar designed to help you understand critical aspects and associated costs of conflict minerals compliance.
