Conflict mineral management


We pledge to follow the requirements of the Responsible Minerals Initiative and the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (CAHRA). We ask our global suppliers to truthfully disclose the use of smelters by completing the latest Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) form.

Define the scope of the investigation and carry out evaluations annually to trace the source of minerals used in the supply chain
Develop an annual supplier audit plan and track the improvement status of suppliers with low-performance
Take escalation actions immediately and request the suppliers to continue to address the critical issues until the risk is acceptable, otherwise suspend cooperation, as necessary
