To stop climate change and improve environmental protection, electric cars will have to replace the current combustion engines. This will create a need for many raw materials such as cobalt, which is useful for the production of batteries to power electric vehicles.
However, more than half of the cobalt needed worldwide comes from mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which are operated by artisanal miners and where children are often employed as early as the age of seven.

Do you use cobalt (cobalt) in your batteries, for example? Your customers require you to report with CRT?

Not sure how to use the Cobalt Reporting Template (CRT) correctly or where to start?
