|Conflict Minerals and Human Rights
August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the
final rule regarding the sourcing of conflict minerals under Section 1502 of
the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Act.Under this rule, publicly traded companies must
report to the SEC the source of conflict minerals in the products they
manufacture or contract to manufacture if the conflict minerals are necessary
to the functionality or production of a product.
Company shares the concerns that the trade of conflict minerals mined in the
eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) may be
assisting human rights violations and environmental degradation in the
region.These minerals and their refined
metals – tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold (3TG) – are widely used in some of
the end markets served by the Company.We support the actions of governments and organizations to increase
supply chain transparency and enable companies to source conflict free minerals.
Company supports the objectives of the legislation and sources materials from
companies that share our values around human rights, ethics and
responsibility.We expect our suppliers
to comply with our Code of Business Conduct and meet the objectives of this
conflict minerals policy.It is the
responsibility of each business unit within the Company to have their
respective suppliers provide all necessary declarations about the source of
conflict minerals by using the EICC / GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting
Company will disclose our progress in implementing this conflict minerals
policy through public reporting, including our website and SEC reporting.
