Porsche joins multi-stakeholder Responsible Mica Initiative
Porsche has joined the “Responsible Mica Initiative“ (RMI). This cross-industry coalition of international companies and non-governmental organisations is campaigning for transparency and improved working conditions in mica mining.
As an automotive manufacturer, Porsche also contributes to the global consumption of the raw material through use of mica in car paints. As part of internal analyses of selected paint supply chains, right back to the extraction of the raw material, Porsche identified potential sustainability risks in mica mining. The sports car manufacturer is working intensively with suppliers to ensure transparent and sustainable utilisation of the raw material mica.
“Our growing initiative already has over 60 member organizations from various sectors. We are delighted that Porsche is now also contributing important supply chain expertise as an automotive manufacturer. With Porsche as a member, we can broaden our base even further and increase positive impact for the mica communities globally,” says Fanny Frémont, Executive Director of the Responsible Mica Initiative.
