IEC statement on conflicting minerals
IEC has always insisted on global social responsibility as our goal, the implementation of moral procurement, and promote sustainable development of the industrial chain.
"Conflict minerals" refers to minerals originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its neighboring countries, such as tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold, and the sale of these minerals may provide financial support for ongoing armed conflicts in these countries. IEC attaches great importance to conflicting minerals and takes action to address this issue.
Conflict Mineral issues are widely watched in electronics and other industries, and the problem is extremely complex and requires the commitment and cooperation of enterprises, governments and non-governmental organizations to be resolved. IEC does not procure and does not support the use of conflicting minerals and requires all suppliers not to procure conflicting minerals. The IEC also requires suppliers to extend this requirement to subordinate suppliers.
IEC supports the adoption of industry cooperation to address supply chain social responsibility issues, we will work with customers and suppliers to seek sustainable solutions to deal with conflict minerals.
