Tesla Joins Fair Cobalt Alliance In Congo



Tesla has recently appeared on the list of members on the Fair Cobalt Alliance (FCA) website. It joins companies including the mining major and trader Glencore and the Chinese cobalt refiner Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt in backing the initiative, which aims to improve working conditions and end child labour in mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). 

The DRC produces approximately 70% of the world’s cobalt, but the industry’s clients - predominantly makers of cars and batteries
