Benjamin Katz

Manager, Minerals Sector Programme, Centre for Responsible Business Conduct, OECD

Benjamin Katz leads the OECD's work on responsible mineral supply chains, having worked on natural resource governance for the past decade. In his current role, the team oversees implementation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains. To promote effective implementation, the OECD works with policymakers, the private sector, and civil society to foster responsible investment in high-risk areas, and alignment of  initiatives on the risk-based approach of the Guidance, increasingly in a broader set of commodities like transition minerals. Prior to the OECD, Ben worked on field projects on due diligence and formalisation of small-scale mining.
