On March 27, 2019, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Geneva Center for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces(DCAF) and CCCMC signed a tripartite framework agreement in Beijing, pledging to strengthen close cooperation in the field of responsible business conduct.


The three sides agreed that they would work together to enhance the ability of security management for Chinese enterprises investing and operating in complex and high-risk areas through resource sharing, mutual experience learning, technical support, seminars, exchanges and training. They would continuously improve good cooperative relations with host governments, police and armed forces, private security providers and local communities, and develop and promote good practices.


CCCMC Vice Chairman Liu Zhonghui, Mr. Jacques Pellet, Personal Envoy of the President of ICRC, and Ambassador Thomas Guerber, Director of DCAF signed the agreement on behalf of the three parties.


CCCMC has released the Chinese Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains to specifically address the challenges faced by Chinese enterprises in investing, cooperating and trading in minerals in conflict areas and high-risk areas, and provides criteria, basis and tool support on how to prevent serious social and environmental risks that may exist in the project life cycle and supply chain.


In December 2012, ICRC and DCAF developed the Toolkit for ‘Addressing security and human rights challenges in complex environments’ to help companies respond to security challenges in their management systems, policies and standard operating procedures based on risk thinking. In July 2018, the Chinese version of "Toolkit" was officially released in Beijing to provide Chinese companies operating overseas with technical support.
