The parties to the IRBC Agreement for the Metal Sector can look back on a productive year. Trust between the parties was strengthened. This resulted in active new collaborations on themes such as health and safety in mines and the risks of child labor in metal recycling. In addition, thanks to training, companies' knowledge of international responsibility business conduct (IRBC) increased. All this can be read in the fourth annual report (2022-2023).
The IRBC Agreement for the Renewable Energy Sector is expanding with the companies Parkwind and TotalEnergies Renewables Netherlands as parties to the agreement. This brings the total number of companies, organisations and governments involved to 39.
