DRC Conflict-Free Minerals Policy

Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) Conflict-Free Minerals

Responsible Business Alliance – Global e-Sustainability Initiative (RBA- GeSI) are committed to improving conditions in the electronics supply chain, and mining activities that fuel conflict are unacceptable. DRC conflict-free minerals are defined as products that do not contain minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten, gold & cobalt) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC or adjoining countries (Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Congo Republic, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia). Dou Yee is aware that illegal mining being carried out in the DRC or adjoining countries contributes to human rights abuses and environmental degradation. In conformance to these RBA requirements, we do not source out minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten, gold & cobalt) mined from the DRC and/or adjoining countries controlled by unlawful, non-government military factions. We will work with members of our own supply chain to ensure the minerals are not being sourced from the DRC or adjoining countries.
