Benjamin Clair
Founder & Project Lead

An expert in the field of artisanal mining and associated challenges in stigmatized parts of the World, Benjamin focuses on the design of strategies and systems to increase the value returned to local communities from the sale of their natural resources, in compliance with international procurement standards. He previously founded the Better Sourcing Program and deployed solutions for continuous reporting of risks related to conflict and human rights abuses at remote mine sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Now with the BetterChain framework, Benjamin is leveraging blockchain technology to support integrated supply chain due diligence from mine to store, provide consumer brands with a window into the provenance of their minerals, and establish a reward mechanism for transparent operators and whistleblowers at local level.
