Use of Conflict-Free Minerals

 

ACS develops products that require the use of minerals. We are committed to exerting our most responsible and reasonable efforts towards ensuring that our need for such minerals, including tin, tungsten and gold, among others ── do not inadvertently finance armed conflict.

To this end, we are compliant with Section 1502 of the US Dodd-Frank Act of 2010. It provides measures on how to determine that a company’s supply chain does not enlist specific countries which are tagged as quite likely to be benefitting armed conflict through their minerals trade. It also outlines how to disclose this information to partners.

The results of our examination of our own supply chain may be found here: ACS Conflict Minerals Report.
