DRC Conflict-Free Sourcing
Climax Technology takes very seriously the worldwide concerns that metals mined
in the conflict areas of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The metals
mined in the areas may be making their way into the electronics supply chain.
The Climax Policy requires that we comply with the expectations in the EICC
program by requiring all supply chain partners to certify in writing that they do not
knowingly procure gold, tantalum, tungsten or tin from conflict areas of the DRC
for provisioning items or contract manufacturing service to Climax Technology by
using EICC Conflict Free Smelters only.
Based on this, Climax Technology confirms that any of the aforementioned metals
utilized by our supply chain and contained in our products are not derived or
sourced from mines in the conflict areas of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
(DRC), and are “DRC Conflict-Free”.
