Conflict free gold


In July of 2010, the United States Congress passed legislation requiring those corporations that are required to report to the SEC (United States Securities and Exchange Commision) to annually report the use of „Conflict Materials“ in the manufacture of their products. We have a responsibility to respect human rights and not contribute to conflict. Whilst we are not an SEC reporting
company, we see it as our responsibility to act upon this legislation with the aim to enable designation of all Umicore´s gold as „Conflict Free“. At this time, Umicore is not aware of the use of any Conflict Materials in its supply chain and sources no gold from DRC. Umicore is already engaged in a group-wide initiative to ensure sustainable sourcing of all raw materials in its supply chain. We will not tolerate any direct or indirect support to non-state armed groups through the extraction, transport, trade, handling or export of minerals.
