Working with global partners, Tyeeli is committed to building a sound, green and sustainable lithium supply chain. We have developed the “Responsible Supply Chain Due Diligence Management Policy” in accordance with the "Chinese Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains" issued by the China Chamber of Commerce of Metals, Minerals & Chemicals Importers & Exporters (CCCMC) and the "OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, Third Edition" issued by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). This policy has provided basic reference for sourcing activities involving lithium metal in the whole process from mining to end user and for the risk awareness in the supply chain.
