We consider our main environmental management practices to be: prioritizing adherence to all environmental laws, regulations, and agreements, then working to improve our product and services environment, implementing environmental management practices in our offices, and contributing to society. We carry out these practices in the context of the regulations of ISO 14001.
In addition to environmental conservation efforts, the company has also summarized six aspects of the concept as follows.
In July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 covered the issue of mineral resources mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other areas as a source of funds for groups linked to human rights violations and environmental destruction.
Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold have been defined as being conflict minerals and public companies in the United States are required be informed annually if the conflict minerals used in their products are a source of funding for armed forces in these areas.
While we do not intentionally use conflict minerals, we will properly disclose the information obtained from standard investigations to our customers. Furthermore, we request our suppliers to procure from a smelter that has been certified by an undisputed internationally established and reliable program.
