What are conflict minerals?
“Conflict Minerals” are defined as the below-mentioned rare and valuable metals that are extracted in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and its adjoining countries.
※ Tantalum, Tungsten, Tin and Gold
Due to the fact that DRC and its adjoining countries produce rare and valuable metals that are used in advanced countries, there are always conflicts over mineral resources, resulting in slaughters and human rights infringements.
Profit of extracted minerals is source of money for the conflicts. To cut off funds that is earned through purchasing the Conflict Minerals, we need to make an effort not to use the Conflict Minerals extracted in DRC and its adjoining countries to exercise our social responsibilities.
Our sourcing policy on Conflict Minerals
In view of the above circumstances, as our basic policy, we will NOT knowingly use 3TG (Tantalum, Tungsten, Tin, and Gold) that is extracted in DRC and its adjoining countries, and is regulated under “Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act”. We also request our vendors to source raw materials from refineries that are approved by RMI and cooperate with our customers in regard to conducting Conflict Minerals surveys.
