Responsible Supply

As a leading company in the tantalum industry, we are committed to ensuring that the tantalum under our control is responsibly and ethically sourced.

Over the last decade, quantities of tantalum (and other "conflict" metals such as tin, tungsten and gold) have entered the global supply chain from locations, particularly war-torn parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where the ore has been mined illegally or without regard and commitment to health, safety, environment, labor conditions and human rights.

We have had a long-term commitment to working closely with our industry, including the end-users of tantalum products, to put in place strategies that will ensure the responsible supply of tantalum material.

For this reason we are an active member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and support its creation of a comprehensive set of tools and processes to enable the credible implementation of a Code of Conduct throughout the supply chains. We adhere closely to the Conflict Minerals policies of the RBA and participate actively in the Responsible Minerals Assurance Program (RMAP).
