About responsible mineral sourcing
Some of the minerals produced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its surrounding areas serve as a source of funding for armed groups that carry out inhumane acts, leading to gross human rights violations such as slave labor, child labor, forced labor, human trafficking, and abuse. It is believed to be encouraging acts of conflict.Minerals produced in these areas (tantalum, tin, tungsten, gold) that are a source of funds for the armed groups mentioned above are called "conflict minerals."With the aim of cutting off funding sources for armed groups, conflict minerals regulation provisions were included in the Financial Regulatory Reform Act enacted in July 2010 in the United States, and efforts to regulate conflict minerals have since been promoted internationally.
In recent years, there have also been regions experiencing political instability, repression, institutional shortcomings, and instability, areas where domestic infrastructure has collapsed, and areas where violence is widespread.These areas experience widespread human rights violations and violations of national or international law. In the EU, the EU Conflict Minerals Regulations, which came into effect in July 2017, have designated these areas as high-risk areas and are tightening regulations on minerals produced from high-risk areas.
In order to avoid complicity in human rights violations, environmental destruction, human rights violations and conflicts by armed groups, our group will not use minerals produced by illegal methods in conflict areas or high-risk areas, or parts made from such minerals in our products. This is our policy.
We ask that our business partners understand and cooperate with our group's efforts to eliminate conflict minerals.
