WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 19 /CSRwire/ - Global Advanced Metals Pty Ltd (GAM) proudly sponsored a special Pact event, “A World of Promise: Advancing Mining Communities,” a reception celebrating Pact's mining programs around the world, including the Great Lakes region of Africa. Pact, an international development organization based in Washington, D.C., works in partnership to develop local solutions that enable people to own their future.
Held at the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C., on October 6th, 2015 the event featured a video presentation (https://vimeo.com/141200173) showcasing how cooperation among supply chain actors has enabled legitimately mined minerals from Central Africa to enter the global trade and helped support the welfare of the artisanal miners.
The event also served as a platform for interactions among major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), governments, and academia on sustainable mining practice and the compliance needs of downstream companies to meet conflict-free requirements.
GAM is a world leader in supporting companies throughout the supply chain in their quest to achieve conflict-free status.
