Policy for DRC Conflict Free procurement
It has been global concern that human rights abuse and violence acts caused by armed groups whose source of the funds is from minerals produced in the Republic of the Congo (DRC) and its neighboring countries. OECD also concerned about non-humanitarian act caused by such countries.
Ikegami recognizes four conflict minerals (tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten) mined in the DRC and its neighboring countries will be the source of funds for such armed groups.
Ikegami herewith declare that we will place great importance on the responsible procurement for non conflict minerals throughout its entire supply chain to avoid the involvement, irrespective of direct or indirect, of human rights abuse in collabolation with our business partners and stakeholders.
