Statement on Conflict Minerals

We are committed to being responsible corporate citizens and are opposed to human rights abuses. As part of that commitment, we seek to source products, components, and materials from companies that share our values around human rights, ethics, and environmental responsibility.  View our Conflict Minerals Policy.

“Conflict minerals” refers to columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, and the derivatives tantalum, tin, and tungsten originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. Revenue from the mining and transport of these conflict minerals is believed to be financing or benefiting groups that are responsible for human rights violations.

We support industry-wide efforts to identify, reduce and hopefully eliminate the use of conflict minerals originating from the DRC and adjoining countries to the extent believed to be financing or benefiting groups committing human rights violations. We are committed to complying with any applicable requirements under the Conflict Minerals Rule and have implemented a due-diligence process to meet its obligations under the legislation.
