Conflict Minerals Policy
Hans Følsgaard is working towards ensuring that our products do not contain Conflict Minerals (3TG) that have been sourced from mines that support or fund conflict within the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries.
HF does not buy products and materials containing Conflict Minerals directly from Conflict Mines
(Currently: columbit tantalite (coltan, niobium and tantalum), cassitite (tin), gold and tungsten (tungsten) and their derived minerals recovered in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and in the neighbouring countries, defined in HR 4173, Wall Street Reform and Dodd Frank Section 1502 Consumer Protection Act, covered by 3TG.)
HF expects all our suppliers to comply with the Dodd-Frank Regulation and require all our suppliers to respond in a timely manner to our requests for evidence of compliance using the CMRT "Conflict Minerals Reporting Template" or otherwise declare that they will conduct due diligence for conflict minerals.
Our suppliers’ willingness to comply with this initiative will be a decisive factor in our sourcing decisions
