Response to conflict minerals

Under the Congo conflict minerals provision in the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which came into force in July 2010, companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges are required to report any use of so-called “conflict minerals” (tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold) that have their origin in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (hereinafter referred to as “DRC”) or an adjoining country. The aim of this provision is to deprive the armed groups which are committing serious violations of human rights in the unceasingly dispute-affected DRC and adjoining countries of their sources of funding.
Under its fundamental policy of refusing to procure conflict minerals that originate in the DRC or adjoining countries and constitute sources of funding for armed groups, the Hosiden Group will work with its suppliers to improve supply chain transparency, so as to avoid any likelihood of our providing encouragement for human rights infringements or any benefits to armed groups in the troubled area.
