ITRI Tin Supply Chain Initiative (iTSCi)

Country: Burundi, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda
Funder: ITRI

Pact leads field implementation for the international tin association’s ITRI Tin Supply Chain Initiative (iTSCi), the region’s only internationally accepted, operational due diligence mechanism and mineral traceability system for the 3T minerals -- tungsten, tin and tantalum. The system monitors minerals from the point of extraction at mines sites to smelters, where minerals are processed for use in electronics and other everyday devices. Pact conducts mine baseline studies to assess when sites are able to enter the system and supports governments in implementing the mineral tracking system. We also ensure that international guidance for ‘conflict free’ minerals is respected, including no human rights abuses, child labor, armed conflict or corruption. Pact records incidents when they arise and facilitates their resolution. The system allows tens of thousands of miners to earn a dignified living and build a better future for themselves and their families.
