Recently an increasing number of international agreements and partnerships around critical minerals are being discussed, negotiated and concluded, also by the UK. Critical minerals and renewable energy are essential to achieving a sustainable future, but their supply chains can be complex and opaque. In this webinar we will explore how supply chain transparency and accountability can be achieved by tracing the journey of these materials from mine to market. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities in implementing traceability and how it can promote sustainable practices and ethical sourcing. 

We are delighted to invite our Members to a webinar with Leanne Kemp, Founder and CEO of Everledger, a platform that specializes in creating secure and transparent digital ledgers to track and protect high-value assets. Well-known for their work in the diamond and gemstones industry, Everledger has expanded their technology to address the opaquely conflicted supply chain challenges.

Leanne Kemp founded Everledger, a startup using the blockchain to help verify the diamond industry, in 2015. The platform was designed to help insurers, claimants and other stakeholders combat fraud and money laundering. Leanne has more than 20 years’ experience in tech, working with RFID tracking, supply chains and advertising. Leanne co-chairs the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on the Future of Manufacturing and takes part in the Global Future Council on Blockchain. She leads workstreams at the Global Blockchain Business Council, co-chairs the World Trade Board’s Sustainable Trade Action Group, and is on the IBM Blockchain Platform Board of Advisors.
