Conflict Minerals Statement
Things On Edge is committed to ensuring that it conducts its business worldwide with respect for human rights and in compliance with all applicable laws. It is concerned by reports that profits from the sale of certain minerals mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries has helped fund war and human rights violations in the eastern Congo. We understand that the armed groups responsible for the conflict in the DRC region may be directly or indirectly financed by the mining of and trade in the ores from which tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold (collectively referred to as “3TG”) are derived.
On August 22 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued the final conflict minerals rule under section 1502 the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The Conflict Minerals Rule requires publicly traded companies to report annually the presence of conflict minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, or “3TG”) originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”).
Things On Edge supports the goal of ending violence, human rights violations and environmental devastation in the Covered Countries and is committed to complying with all requirements applicable to our company under the Conflict Mineral Rule.
Things On Edge will assist our customers in implementing their conflict minerals programs. We strive to work cooperatively with our customers and supply chain partners in implementing conflict minerals compliance programs.
Things On Edge requires that suppliers whose products contain tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold submit this information to us using the standardised EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template which traces the minerals back through the supply chain. Things On Edge also supports industry initiatives such as the Conflict Free Smelter (CFS) program to validate responsible and sustainable sources. Our objective is to implement a conflict-free supply chain and should we become aware of a supplier whose supply chain includes minerals from a conflict source, Things On Edge will take appropriate actions to remedy the situation in a timely manner, including reassessment of supplier relationships, to achieve that objective. Things On Edge expects our suppliers to take similar measures with their suppliers to ensure alignment throughout the supply chain.
