THE CONTEXT OF INDIA’S MICA INDUSTRY

Mica is used in a wide range of industries that benefit from the mineral’s diverse attributes. The cosmetics, automotive coatings and printing ink industries utilize mica’s visual properties. Mica is a natural insulator used throughout the electronics industry, serves as a filler in plastics and construction materials and is used as a lubricant in the oil and gas drilling sector, among other applications. About 25% of the world production of mica comes from illegal collection in North-East India. As a result of poverty and lack of available quality education, some families have had no recourse but to bring their children with them to collect mica to supplement their incomes.  In 2016, it was indeed estimated that more than 20,000 children are working in extremely harsh conditions to contribute to their family revenue.

ESTABLISHING COLLABORATION

In 2009, companies eager to find ways to tackle the endemic problems in the region that lead to the use of child labor began to take action independently and collectively. In February 2016, members of the global mica supply chain gathered in Delhi, India for the first Mica Summit, which galvanized companies and civil society organizations to act and led to the formation of the Responsible Mica Initiative. The Responsible Mica Initiative was formally established in January 2017.

ABOUT THE RESPONSIBLE MICA INITIATIVE (RMI): TOWARDS RESPONSIBLE MICA SUPPLY CHAINS

The Responsible Mica Initiative (RMI) is a global ‘Coalition for Action’ – putting policy into practice – comprised of multiple organizations committed to establishing fair, responsible and sustainable mica supply chains that will eliminate unacceptable working conditions and eradicate child labor.

RMI uses a multi-stakeholder and holistic approach that engages companies, civil society organizations, industry associations and governments to develop and implement three integrated program pillars that will establish responsible workplace standards, empower local communities, and establish a legal framework for the mica sector.

RMI’s program pillars implement the mandates and fulfill the goals established by intergovernmental bodies such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the OECD’s Practical actions for companies to identify and address the worst forms of child labor in mineral supply chains. In recognition of RMI strategy and accomplishments, in 2018 RMI was recognized in a case study by the US Department of Labor, International Labor Affairs Bureau in its annual report on child labor and by the UN Forum on Business and Human Rights as best practice at its annual November conference in Geneva.

Today, RMI has more than 70 members who count among the major cosmetics, paints, automotive… brands and suppliers, and internationally recognized NGOs.
