    Goals / Remit

    The Cobalt Institute (CI) is a non-profit trade association composed of producers, users, recyclers, and traders of cobalt. We promote the sustainable and responsible production and use of cobalt in all its forms.

    The Cobalt Institute acts as a knowledge centre for governments, agencies, industry, academia, the media and civil society on all matters concerning cobalt. The CI represents the voice of the cobalt industry on all cobalt related issues and challenges including health, safety and environment, sustainability and responsible sourcing, among others.

    The Cobalt Institute also promotes co-operation between all stakeholders and provides a mechanism for the development and dissemination of independent information concerning the resources, production and uses of cobalt.
