It sets out the sector`s commitments to improve social, social and environmental conditions and aims to make substantial improvements in Asia, Africa and Latin America over the next three to five years. The agreement is a joint initiative of the Dutch and Flemish parties. Dutch metals companies often depend on importing raw materials for their production.
