Non-Conflict Raw Materials

The company considers the issue of conflict minerals to be of major concern as a funding source for organizations that are involved with human rights abuses, environmental destruction, bribery, terrorism and other unlawful activities in conflict areas.

In seeking to fulfill its social responsibility in procurement, the company has therefore adopted in principle a policy of non-use of conflict-affected minerals as raw materials.

Since the company does not source minerals directly, it seeks to ensure that its suppliers have similar policies in place and can clearly identify the sources of their minerals.

In the unlikely event that the company discovers that a supplier it is inadvertently or otherwise using conflict-affected minerals, the Company will immediately take steps to ensure that the supplier discontinues their use of those minerals or will cease procurement from that supplier.

However, in conflict areas there are still companies and individuals who are engaged in legitimate business. The Company will aim to ensure that its decisions not to use illegal minerals do not harm the business activities of these legitimate operators.
