In 2010, Congress passed the Dodd Frank Act, which requires companies to disclose whether any of the products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the company contains conflict minerals that originate in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or any of the adjoining parties. For the purposes of the rule, conflict minerals include tantalum, tin, gold or tungsten.
This is to stop the armed group revenue related to the minerals.
As a basic policy, JAC decided not to purchase the conflict minerals.
In relation with raw material suppliers, we will try to increase transparency of supply chain.
