Responsible Procurement of Raw Materials

We promote the responsible procurement of raw materials by reasonably ensuring that the minerals and raw materials such as tantalum, tin, tungsten, gold (3TG), and cobalt that we procure have no connection with mining and transactions that violate human rights and pose labor issues, etc. We exercise due diligence towards the origin and distribution process of raw materials, and disclose our methods with regard to such due diligence upon request.

To fulfill its social responsibility in procurement activities, the Group will not use raw materials in its conduct of business which produce financial resources for organizations related to risks and fraud, including child labor and other human rights violations, poor working environments, environmental destruction, corruption, and conflict participation. The Group carries out investigations in advance to eliminate the use of said raw materials wherever possible. We spare no effort in cooperating with industry organizations and customers who conduct investigations on the procurement of raw materials, and work with them to ensure responsible procurement activities.
