Electric car companies: clean up your act!

To Tesla, BMW, Daimler, Renault, Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, and VW:

As citizens from around the globe, we urge you to act immediately to identify, address, account for and prevent human rights abuses in your cobalt supply chains. Reports of child labour in the mines are deeply disturbing and we urge you to do your due diligence by carrying out audits directly and with transparency before more children suffer.

Electric car companies: clean up your act!
Electric car companies like Tesla have a dirty secret: kids as young as four can spend all day inhaling toxic fumes, mining for cobalt to power the batteries used in their cars.

It’s outrageous -- and it’s not just Tesla -- none of the top electric car companies have proved their supply chain is clean!

40,000 kids do this backbreaking work in the mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo. And it's only going to get worse -- experts say that demand for cobalt will grow 9000% in the next 20 years as the electric car market grows.

We have to sort this out now!

Car companies are under pressure after major media outlets exposed the story, but they’re hoping it’ll fade from public view. We can make sure it doesn't. Let's get 1 million to call on Tesla and the others to clean up their supply chain.
