As an upstream member company of the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) since July 2020, and as a mineral producer through our 50%-owned refinery in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada, Sherritt continues to work diligently to align with various responsible sourcing standards for both nickel and cobalt production.
In 2020, Sherritt completed a conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRA) assessment based on OECD guidance, which concluded that Sherritt, its subsidiaries, and the Moa Joint Venture (JV) do not source from, produce in, or transit through CAHRAs. This assessment was independently validated.
Sherritt engaged TDI Sustainability, an RMI-approved auditing firm, to perform an independent baseline audit using an audit protocol aligned with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
