About the project:
The aim of the project is to develop a standard setting scheme for mineral resources which is able to foster market transparency in mining and smelting of mineral resources.
The target of this research project is the development of a system, e.g. for standard setting, diligence or certification, which documents and evaluates the extraction and processing of mineral resources in terms of their sustainability impacts transparently, along the various process steps in the value chain. This project is based at Kassel University and accompanied by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) and Beak Consultants GmbH.
