Conflict Minerals Policy
Conflict minerals originating from Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries (DRC Region) are mined and sold to groups engaged in armed conflict and human rights violations.
The conflict minerals are tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold(called 3TG). Some of these minerals can become part of supply chains of products that are manufactured and used around the world.
As part of corporate responsibility and respecting human rights, RAONTECH is committed to work with our supply chains to source responsibly and provide “conflict-free” products that do not directly and indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC Region.
RAONTECH expects our suppliers to do similar polices and provide the products which contain conflict free minerals.
RAONTECH will do the following actions:
- - Expect our suppliers to source conflict free material and provide conflict free products.
- - Expect and encourage our suppliers to exercise due diligence continuously with OECD due diligence guidance for responsible supply chains for minerals from conflict-affected and high risk area.
- - Expect our suppliers provide the due diligence information and provide the smelter list information to confirm 3TG used in our supply chain is conflict free.
- - Commit in the implementation of this policy by monitoring the supplier’s activity and provide the assurance of conflict free provider.
