Kay Nimmo, ITRI’s Sustainability and Regulatory Affairs Manager, has been nominated to be included in the 2016 Top 100 Conflict Minerals Influence Leaders list.
This is a reflection of Kay’s great work and commitment to finding solutions to reduce the links between minerals and conflict financing in the African Great Lakes region over a number of years. Kay contributed to the first drafts of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, worked with the CFS program to encourage smelter audits and established the iTSCi Programme which now helps more than 300 upstream companies and around 1,500 mine areas in 4 countries (Burundi, DRC, Rwanda and Uganda). The tremendous success of iTSCi is of course also down to the dedication of all staff members, including those from Pact, as well as supporting governments and industry participants.
An on-line vote is open until March 16th and you can vote for Kay to be included on this influential list by clicking here
