Conflict materials and cobalt policy
We expect our suppliers to take reasonable steps to ensure that the components and products they deliver to us do not originate from conflict-affected and high-risk areas. In other words, they should not consist of conflict minerals or cobalt that benefit armed groups or contribute to human rights violations.
The following metals are defined as conflict minerals:
- (i) tin
- (ii) tantalum
- (iii) tungsten
- (iv) gold
- (v) all derivatives thereof
The purpose of this policy is to ensure that our products do not directly or indirectly finance or in any way benefit armed groups or contribute to human rights violations, whether through mining or trading of minerals in conflict-affected and high-risk areas.
We expect our suppliers to establish policies, long-term frameworks, and management systems in accordance with the OECD’s due diligence guidelines for responsible mineral supply. This focus is specifically on conflict-affected and high-risk areas, as deemed appropriate within their respective areas of operation.
We will not purchase any material classified as a conflict mineral, whether as raw materials or other types of input materials. Cobalt and the specific metals mentioned above are not expected to be included in our products in any way. From our perspective, they are considered undesirable, which is why this issue does not pose a problem for us.
