Inventec commits itself to comply with the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct, and Inventec expects our suppliers will also comply with the policies including no “conflict minerals” policy.

Conflict minerals(including tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold)originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries are mined and sold under the control of armed groups to finance conflict characterized by extreme levels of violence, such as human right abuses. USA passed the Dodd-Frank Act and enacted Section 1502 of the Act to require certain companies to disclose their use of conflict minerals if those minerals are “necessary to the functionality or production of a product” manufactured by those companies.
Inventec expects our suppliers to comply with requirements of conflict free minerals. Our commitments and actions are as below:
- Requesting that our suppliers undertake commercially reasonable due diligence with their supply chain to assure conflict minerals used in products supplied to Inventec are conflict free.
- Requesting that our suppliers immediately report to Inventec if there are conflict minerals used in products supplied to us.
- With the goal of fulfilling customer requirements and international regulations, Inventec has conducted suppliers conflict minerals survey program based on Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative(CFSI) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template(CMRT) since 2011 and has launched e-investigation via iSupplier portal since 2013.
