Histrory

A Solid Foundation to Build From

Within the industry, the Cobalt Institute has a reputation for setting the standard for the sustainable and responsible production and use of cobalt. But with increasing expectations from society, our customers, and the media, it’s time we take this reputation public. That’s why we created CIRAF – a new tool to help you publicise your commitment to global best practices in responsible production and sourcing.

The Cobalt Institute officially launches the Cobalt Industry Responsible Assessment Framework (CIRAF) on 9 January 2019.

CIRAF sets up an informal Stakeholder Dialogue Group to provide progress updates to key stakeholders and gather constructive input on the initiative. The Stakeholder Dialogue Group is composed of 16 stakeholders representing international organisations, regulators, civil society, standard setting bodies, industry groups, and others.

Bilateral engagements take place with the stakeholder community and key standard setting bodies, including RMI, OECD, and LME. The goal of this engagement is to ensure CIRAF remains relevant and to explore opportunities for collaboration and alignment.

The Cobalt Institute organises two public events on CIRAF, held in conjunction with the OECD Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains and the RMI Conference.
