For more than 30 years, partnership has been at the heart of IMPACT’s work.
Today, we continue to value our collaborations—with civil society partners and multi-stakeholder allies—
and partnership remains an integral pillar of our work.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) developed the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, a voluntary set of guidelines for the private sector to responsibly source minerals. IMPACT advised on and contributed to the development of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, including its annexes on 3Ts and artisanal gold. We are also currently serving as co-chair of the Multi-Stakeholder Steering Group, which supports its implementation. We provide capacity building to stakeholders around the world—including West Africa and the Great Lakes region—on implementing the Guidance. We also strongly advocate for legal adoption of the Guidance as part of our technical support to governments.
