The Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) and the Copper Mark are revising the Risk Readiness Assessment (RRA) Criteria and corresponding Criteria Guide in 2021-2023.
- As voluntary self-assessment and self-reporting tool for minerals and metals producers and processors participating in the RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process.
- As the foundation of the RMI’s Environmental, Social, and Governance Standard for Mineral Supply Chains; and
- As the foundation of the Copper Mark Criteria for Responsible Production against which sites are independently assessed during the Copper Mark Assurance Process.
The methodology of the RRA is available on the RMI website here.
