Context and focus:
Published in April 2021, the ESG Due Diligence and Transparency Report on Extractive Commodity Trading shows the results of a pilot study that assesses policies and practices among a sample of 25 companies that have significant activities in the trade of oil, gas, metals or minerals.
In this session RMF will briefly present the results and learnings of this report; to provide an initial sectorial baseline by highlighting gaps and good practices seen across the industry. The session will then be open for discussion, with a panel of speakers representing different stakeholder groups commenting on the progress and the challenges of implementation of ESG standards and norms for extractive commodity trading companies.
