We are pleased to announce that Georgetown Law School (GLS) is participating in our analysis of the 2013 conflict minerals SEC filings. It is our belief that this will be the most comprehensive review of the 2013 Form SDs and Conflict Minerals Reports (CMRs) conducted.
Elm has read almost half of the 1300+ filings and collected data on twenty criteria. GLS is reviewing the remaining filings and collecting the same data.
Once completed, the data will be used by GLS for their own independent, impartial and academic studies. Elm will use the same data for our business purposes which include conducting company-level benchmarking reports. The data will also form the basis for future Elm presentations and publications.
