Cobalt Supply Chains Visualizer by Resource Matters

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) produces around 70% of all cobalt consumed in the world. Demand for cobalt is set to increase substantially in the next years due to the energy transition underway, as it is used to make electric batteries more stable and increase their energy density.

We have gathered information about the transactions of several leading companies in the cobalt market. We want to disclose where the cobalt produced by certain companies ends up, to identify potential levers and pressure points, in hope that this helps improve corporate behavior on the ground.
