This event is an opportunity to hear an overview of Conflict Minerals Reporting-Year 1 as well as information on the year ahead. You will also hear the automotive industry's perspective on conflict minerals reporting and receive an update on the industry-leading work AIAG and its members have done to identify resources and develop tools to help companies gain greater supply chain transparency.
