On the pledge:
We have developed a multi-year roadmap towards 2030 based on 10 principles to which we all commit, including Principle #8 “Immediately and urgently eliminating child and forced labour, strengthening communities and respecting the human rights of those employed by the value chain.
On the implementation:
We will create a Battery Passport, establish a Cobalt Action Partnership, implement the Fund for the Prevention of Child Labour in Mining, and formalise Lead-acid batteries recycling.
On the impact:
This Action Pledge will allow us to support the implementation of standards at mine sites in the DRC which will require no child labour, address the issue of child labour and its root causes by building self-resilient communities, and eliminate the participation of children in recycling and their exposure to lead.
