Policy regarding conflict minerals
There is no more important issue faced by corporate entities and every other organization promoting social responsibilities than the protection of human rights and consideration for vulnerable groups.
The United Nations has proven that non-governmental forces are using violent and inhumane methods to mine minerals in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and that proceeds from sales of these minerals are financing their activities. This is a very serious social problem impacting our procurement of supplies.
We join in the Responsible Minerals Trade Working Group of the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), an organization of the electronics industries in Japan, and from our position to promote Sustainability Procurement throughout our global supply chain.
It is our policy to not use materials that contain the four conflict minerals, tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold, as defined by the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act regulated by Securities and Exchange Commission. (Conflict minerals are minerals produced or processed using illegal methods in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries.) The JVCKENWOOD Group is promoting the responsible procurement of minerals and the establishment of an accountable supply chain based on this policy.
