16 December 2020 (Webinar) - Introducing the CERA Performance Standard for responsible upstream mine operations
The Webinar focuses on the CERA Performance Standard (CPS) and its structure, systematic and requirements. The CERA system consists of four sub-standards. The CERA Performance Standard (CPS), focuses on the responsible performance of the mine or the subsequent process, the CCS, which covers the tracking of responsible extracted material throughout the entire value chain, the CRS, which tackles the (pre-)investment phase prior the operation, and the CFS, that focuses on the downstream value chain.

CERA will be the first universal and comprehensive certification scheme that accommodates all minerals and all regions. In contrast to other sectors such as the forestry, food or textile sector, in which a comprehensive certification scheme for production and transport is already established an all-encompassing standard for the certification of mineral resources does not yet exist.
In addition, the moral and ethical principles of the consumer when buying sustainably obtained and manufactured products and the political demand for compliance with social, ecological and financial principles are increasing. This implies the need to establish a complete and universally recognised certification system for the production, processing and traceable transport of all mineral resources.
Sustainability along the entire raw materials supply chain
CERA solves the problem of inefficient and inconsistent certification with a universal and standardised evaluation of environmental, social and economic sustainability along the entire raw materials supply chain.
Streamlining and simplification of sustainability evidence
Through a systemic approach, CERA will streamline and simplify the method through which sustainability is defined and guaranteed within the entire raw materials supply chain.
A scheme for the raw materials industry, by the raw materials industry
CERA brings together the strongest possible team, led and crutinised by some of the Europe’s leading commercial, academic and institutional partners.
To ensure the credibility of CERA, the team behind the project consists of professional and experienced members, each of which bring highly specialised and unique knowledge in their field.
