How can I help educate my suppliers about conflict minerals?
The best way to educate your suppliers on conflict minerals is with the web-based training program available through the Conflict Minerals Resource Center (CMRC). The CMRC’s Conflict Minerals Basic Training course is an interactive training course covering the content necessary for someone to participate in a conflict minerals program. If you’re a Source Intelligence customer then you can give you suppliers a free membership to the CMRC with your coupon code.
