As the main raw material for our products is mica, the group highly depends on this unique mineral with outstanding physical characteristic. Unfortunately, in many countries mica is sourced, there is a high risk of violation of children’s rights in mica mining.
While COGEBI is doing its utmost to ensure the Group is purchasing its micas from the suppliers which do not use child labor, there are not enough instruments for us to battle the problem entirely. However, as every step in this battle counts, COGEBI is continuously searching for mechanisms allowing us to make valuable contributions that might help to tackle this issue. One of such mechanisms is contributing to Education programs in risk areas that aim to improve the accessibility of scholar education in countries where a high risk of using child labor in mica mining exists.
COGEBI is pleased to announce its support to the Education programs in Madagascar being realized by UNICEF. The Group is also targeting to broaden its participation in such Education programs by establishing a more strategic partnership with UNICEF over time.
