At Ushio America, Inc., we are committed to responsible sourcing practices and ethical business conduct. As part of this commitment, we have adopted a conflict minerals policy in line with Dodd-Frank Section 1502 legislation and reporting rules, that we do not contribute to human rights abuses or environmental harm through our supply chain.
We recognize that certain minerals, including tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold, can be sourced from regions where armed conflict, human rights violations, and environmental degradation are prevalent. We will not knowingly purchase or use these minerals if they originate from such regions, and we will take steps to ensure that we do not source from such regions.
We will continue to monitor and evaluate our policy to ensure that we are meeting our commitments and making a positive impact.
