Conflict Mineral Statement
Ref: Inquiries on - Conflict Metals or Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2010: Section 1502 - Conflict Minerals.
Henkel undertakes due diligence to attempt to determine if 'conflict minerals' are used in our products. Conflict minerals are described as Gold (Au), Tantalum (Ta), Tungsten (W) and Tin (Sn) that are sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries from mines controlled by non-governmental military groups.
As part of the Henkel process for the implementation of new suppliers, our sustainability questionnaires requests direct confirmation that materials we purchase do not contain conflict minerals and a self-declaration is also required that the full supply chain process of the suppliers has been examined to confirm this.
In addition, we have also reviewed our existing supply base, and in particular suppliers of materials that contain the above named minerals. We can confirm that there is no indication that any products manufactured by the Electronics group of Henkel contain conflict minerals.
