Conflict Minerals

In August of 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) established the reporting obligations of section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act signed in 2010. Though we are not required under the SEC act to report, we fully support the efforts of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

We embrace a conviction to act responsibly and ensure that our supply chain is conflict-free. This means that we work closely with our supply chain to make sure that they do not use minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or its surrounding countries that might be supporting human rights abuses.

Furthermore, we do not directly buy tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold commonly referred to as the “3T&G.” We actively request statements from our suppliers to confirm that they do not buy 3T&G from the DRC. Our suppliers also affirm compliance with the intent of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the SEC directives on the matter.
