Tackling with Conflict Minerals
A part of minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) produced in Democratic Republic of the Congo and the conflict affected areas in its adjacent countries has given rise to serious abuse of human rights and environment destruction on the occasion of the mining or funded armed groups, whereby an international issue of the Conflict Minerals has occurred.
Raw materials derived from many minerals are used in the business field of electronic components to which we belong. We as a member of the global supply chain tackle with this problem in cooperation with our stakeholders in accordance with the following policy.
