The silver trophy for RMI in Sustainable Supply Chain Category

Indeed, RMI has been awarded for its research, released April 2023, and ongoing work to lift mica communities out of poverty and end child labor, through payment of living incomes and wages.

RMI and its members: private companies and NGOs take great care to ‘walk the talk’ across all areas of sustainability in mica supply chain.
We will keep focusing our efforts on 3 integrated program pillars:
