Conflict Mineral Statement
MiTAC's Statement for Restricted Use of Conflict Minerals
Social and environmental problems related to the materials of product parts and to the manufacturing process have received worldwide attention in recent years. The rich mineral resources in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have fueled one of the world’s deadliest conflicts. We understand that most of our suppliers do not have direct purchasing relationships with mining companies. However, we understand we have the opportunity to have a positive impact on this complex issue as an individual company. Thus, we have taken the following action.
MiTAC has proactively taken measures on the sources and origins of the mentioned minerals to ensure a conflict-free supply chain.
- MiTAC suppliers must conduct their operations in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
- MiTAC does not accept the conflict minerals originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo(DRC) and its adjoining countries.
- MiTAC suppliers should trace the origins of the minerals, such as Gold (Au), Tantalum (Ta), Tin (Sn), and Tungsten (W), to ensure that they are not "conflict minerals" related.
- MiTAC suppliers should impose the same requirement on their upstream suppliers.
