Founder, Betterchain

Benjamin Clair founded the Better Sourcing Program (BSP) and BetterChain. BSP restores access to conflict-free mineral markets for local artisanal mining communities exposed to supply chain due diligence regulation. As part of such compliance activities, the program collects unprecedented mine-level data in post-conflict and high-risk areas. Meanwhile, as upstream costs associated with supply chain due diligence (BSP) are fundamentally passed through to vulnerable communities, Better Chain is designed as a multi-stakeholder, DLT-powered framework to connect supply chains from end to end, provide consumer-level access to relevant mine-level data, and generate incentives for local supply chain transparency.
