Does the brand (company) regularly publish an updated list of smelters that are identified in the own supply chain?
Publiceert het merk (bedrijf) regelmatig een geüpdatete lijst van smelterijen die in de eigen productieketen zijn geïdentificeerd?
Veröffentlicht der Markenhersteller eine regelmäßig aktualisierte Liste der ausgemachten Schmelzhütten innerhalb der eigenen Zuliefererkette?


This question relates to issue O3 of Greenpeace’s Guide to Greener Electronics version 18 from November 2012. Click 'ranking criteria' in the box on the right side of the Greenpeace webpage. From page 11 of the document you find the Greenpeace requirements and references.

Many of the electronic brands already participate in the Conflict Free Smelters Program (CFSP). A clear milestone in the process of excluding conflict minerals in the supply chain -after investigation which smelters are within the brand supply chain and include them into the program- is to regularly publish the list of identified smelters on the brand (owner) website. Several brands already publish and regularly update this list of smelters.
