Petition Action

Take action to tackle modern slavery in artisanal cobalt mining

Petition Details

Investigate, exert pressure and legislate to tackle modern slavery in artisanal cobalt mining. This could involve new regulation of the cobalt supply chain to tackle unethically sourced cobalt, and/or the regulation and certification of products that use cobalt similar to the diamond industry.

Additional Information

If the UK Government is a protector of universal human rights this should be an issue the UK Government should be tackling immediately.
