Conflict Minerals Sourcing Policy

“Conflict Minerals” originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are sometimes mined and sold by armed groups to “finance conflict characterized by extreme levels of violence.” Some of these minerals and the metals created from them (tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold) can make their way into the supply chains of the products used around the world, including those in the electronics industry.

Antunes suppliers acquire and use minerals from multiple sources worldwide. As part of Antunes’ commitment to corporate responsibility and respecting human rights in own operations and in our global supply chain, it is Antunes’ goal to seek to use tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold in our products that are “DRC conflict free.”

Antunes expects our suppliers to have policies in place and due diligence measures that will enable us to ensure that products and components supplied to us containing conflict minerals are DRC conflict free. Antunes expects our suppliers to comply with the Electronic Industry Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct and conduct their business in alignment with Antunes supply chain responsibility expectations.

In support of this policy, Antunes will:

  • — Exercise due diligence with relevant suppliers consistent with OECD Due Diligence Guidance for responsible supply chains of minerals from conflict-affected and high risk areas and encourage our suppliers to have their suppliers do the same.
  • — Provide and expect our suppliers to cooperate in providing due diligence information to confirm that tantalum, tungsten, tin, and gold in our supply chain is DRC conflict free.
  • — Collaborate with our suppliers and others on industry-wide solutions to enable products that are DRC conflict free.
  • — Commit to the implementation of this policy.
