As for the behaviors of managers and employees as well as their actions on behalf of our company, the Code of Conduct Guidelines for NOBLE Group stipulated below shall be faithfully followed.
NOBLE Group is aware of the importance of environmental conservation and strives to carry out manufacturing work in an environmentally-friendly manner through the use of “human-orientated technology” - technology that is both environmentally - and human-friendly. We continue to do our best to meet our customers' expectations as a company while contributing to the conservation of our planet.
NOBLE Group adhere to the following environmental policy in all activities related to the development, design, manufacturing, and retail of electronic components.
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.
We summarize our approach for the following seven areas.
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.
