Supplier shall have a policy to reasonably prevent and reduce the risk that mineral in the products they manufacture, does not directly or indirectly finance or benefit groups that may contribute to or be perpetrators of serious human rights abuses, or serious environment, health and safety concerns ,serious corruption in affected countries and areas. Suppliers are required to conduct source tracing and responsible mineral due diligence for mineral products used in their purchased products, and share due diligence information with customers to ensure consistency with supply chain policy and guidance requirements and progressively improve supply chain transparency and supply chain governance capabilities.
The responsible mineral supply chain due diligence management is a process of continuous improvement. Resolution will require the commitment and cooperation of businesses, governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). We will continue to engage with industry organizations to seek sustainable solutions with customers and suppliers to drive the sustainable development of the mineral supply chain.
