Video: Intel Leaders Travel to Africa to Track Responsibly Sourced Minerals

Adam Schafer, Intel director of Supply Chain Sustainability, and Erin Mitchell, Intel’s Responsible Minerals Program manager, spent a week in late 2019 crisscrossing Rwanda’s mineral-rich mountains. Schafer and Mitchell made the trip to fully understand the first part of a complex process that brings minerals from Africa to high-tech companies for use in their devices. The Intel team’s fact-finding trip was completed before the coronavirus pandemic halted most air travel — but helped guide Intel’s recently announced 2030 Corporate Responsibility Goals as they relate to responsible sourcing.
