Triple-Bottom-Line Sustainability Frameworks for Corporations
- California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 657), which took effect in 2012, requires certain manufacturers and retailers that do business in that state to publicly disclose what specific actions, if any, they’ve taken to eliminate slavery and human trafficking from their product supply chains.

- Conflict Minerals Provision
The conflict minerals provision (Section 1502) of the Dodd-Frank Act was adopted in August 2012 by the SEC. This rule will require companies to disclose whether their products contain certain minerals sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo and neighboring countries.
While this may seem at the surface like a relatively isolated provision affecting few companies, it will impact many companies in the manufacturing industry, particularly those in the electronics, automotive, equipment, aerospace, jewelry, and medical device sectors. Indeed, the SEC estimates that potentially half of all publicly traded companies would be affected, not to mention their suppliers.
