Critical raw material are feeding new & green technologies. Today, supply chains transparency are oem’s prerequisite.

Supply chains are the backbone of global trade and are the link between consumers and natural resources.
A responsible and influential investment capacity makes it possible to act for positive impacts at the heart of these chains, whose values need to be shared between the stakeholders. 
Supply chains are value chains as much as a chain of responsibility. The urgent need for companies to report on Scope 3 Emission (GHG protocol reporting) only reinforces this aspect of the chain of responsibilities.  

Supply chains interact with communities and civil societies. A society for all aims to eradicate poverty, inequalities and give access to education. It will lead to greater participation in economic markets and provide greater investment growth opportunities. Transparent supply chains reduce reputational risk and enhance the company’s standing as a trustworthy enterprise, it also attracts and retain employees.

Supply chains generate a wide range of environmental impacts as they interact on soils, biodiversity, water, and air.


Since 2005 ethore has developed its knowledge about critical  metals and rare earth elements supply chains. We have written several articles in the Press (AGEFI, F&W, etc...) and made public presentations (RTS1 19h30 appearance).
