Procurement Policy against Conflict Minerals

Based upon the section 1502 of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which was signed into law on July 21, 2010, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) established the regulations finally on August 22, 2012, that defines Conflict Minerals as Tantalum, Tin, Gold and Tungsten mined in or around the Democratic Republic of the Congo and that requires U.S. public companies to report the use of these "conflict minerals" yearly to SEC.
Conflict minerals are those four minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or around, by the Congolese National Army, and various armed rebel groups.

Rubycon Corporation expressed the support for and officially joined the UN Global Compact as of October 7, 2011. There we proclaimed to contribute to society thru business activities, by supporting 10 principles about Human rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-corruption.
Rubycon Corporation and group companies also agree to the ideas of the Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act and in the sense of CSR as the leader of UN Global Compact, continue activities together with our suppliers to identify and abandon the use of Conflict Minerals.
