EGC official launch

Entreprise Générale du Cobalt (EGC) was established in response to two decrees issued in November 2019 by the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s (DRC) Prime Minister and Minister of Mines. EGC’s role is to purchase, process and sell cobalt produced by artisanal miners or companies involved in artisanal and small-scale mining in the DRC.

On March 31st, 2021 EGC officially launched its activities at an online event in Johannesburg and published its “EGC Responsible Sourcing Standard” – a world first that will underpin respect for human rights, market confidence and support a safe and just commodities transition.
