Conflict Minerals refers to metal minerals that are mainly derived from illegal military conflict areas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or its neighboring areas to squeeze labor and conduct mining operations in harsh working environments. The mining and sales of conflict minerals are controlled by armed groups to fund conflicts in neighboring areas. Obtaining metal products from conflict minerals will be regarded as an indirect support for procurement that violates humanitarianism.
Chang Chun Group is continuously committed to the practice of responsible supply chain and makes continuous contributions to reduce social, environmental and safety risks in the supply chain. Chang Chun Group promises not to purchase conflict minerals and their products. At the same time, it also requires suppliers to work together to ensure that the responsible supply chain can be more complete.
To ensure that products do not contain conflict minerals, Chang Chun Group's main policies are as follows:
1. The supplier must sign the "Chang Chun Group Supplier Code of Conduct" and promise that the supplied products do not contain conflict minerals.
2. Before proceeding with procurement operations, confirm whether the products provided by the supplier involve conflict minerals.
3.For suppliers who provide products related to conflict minerals, the latest conflict mineral report template (CMRT) and cobalt report template (CRT) issued by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) are regularly issued annually to provide specific metal products. Manufacturers conduct investigations or their precious metal trading objects are listed in the Good Delivery List announced by LBMA (London Bullion Market Association) to ensure the source of the metal used by the supplier.
