For us, the issue of sustainability goes beyond the boundaries of our own system and we rely on strong partnerships with our suppliers and customers in this area. Long-term cooperation with all of our suppliers, and the establishment of sustainable relationships, are key concerns for us.
We follow nationally and internationally recognized guidelines related to conflict minerals. We have implemented the relevant requirements of the European Conflict Minerals Regulation (EU) 2017/821 establishing supply chain due diligence obligations for Union importers of tin, tantalum, tungsten, their ores and gold originating from conflict-affected and high risk areas. In 2021, we were audited by the RCS Global Group regarding our implementation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
Our requirements regarding conflict minerals are reflected in our Code of Conduct for Suppliers.
