Where minerals such as tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold (3TG) and cobalt are mined in conflict-affected or high-risk areas such as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, the revenue from the mining and trading of these minerals is a source of funding for armed groups and anti-government forces carrying out atrocities and human rights abuses. Minerals sourced from such conflict-affected or high-risk areas have the potential to promote conflict, human rights violations and environmental degradation.
ViewSonic considers mining to be an intensive process involving social and environmental risks. ViewSonic believes that the mining of metals and minerals, including Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum, Gold (so called conflict minerals) and Cobalt mined in the DRC, as well as other minerals mined in other regions, must be managed.
ViewSonic’s policy is that we want no part in any human rights violations or environmental destruction. While sourcing minerals that originate in conflict-affected or high-risk areas, we will not, by any means, tolerate, knowingly profit from, contribute to, assist with or facilitate the commission by any party of any form of human rights violations or abuses, or support operations that result in the degradation of socioeconomic and environmental stability.
As a member of Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”), we require suppliers to adhere to this policy and expect them to support and promote compliance within the supply chain.
ViewSonic takes the following actions to responsibly source minerals used in ViewSonic Monitor products.
1. Notify suppliers of the responsible minerals sourcing policy and code of conduct (harmonised with the RBA code of conduct). https://www.viewsonic.com/us/code-of-conduct
2. Identify and prioritize minerals for inclusion in our responsible sourcing strategy (currently Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum, Gold and Cobalt for our supply chains
3. Require suppliers to conduct due diligence on prioritized minerals in accordance with OECD Guidance and provide routine reporting using the tools developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) to enable supply chain transparency
4. Ensure that minerals are procured only from smelters and refiners verified as compliant with the Responsible Minerals Assurance Program (RMAP) developed by the RMI. ViewSonic requires smelters and refiners to obtain proof of compliance through their supply chains.
5. Continue to collect relevant information regarding industry trends, customer reactions and movements in the US, EU and other regions to assure continued compliance to future regulations.
