SMART Technologies' Conflict Minerals Policy
SMART Technologies ULC and its affiliates are committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values with regard to human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility. SMART Technologies is committed to sourcing minerals in a manner that respects human rights.
SMART Technologies is committed to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) guidance on conflict minerals and supports Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which aims to prevent the use of conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or in adjoining countries.
Suppliers to SMART Technologies are being evaluated on their commitment to becoming conflict-free and to source only from conflict-free smelters. Each supplier to SMART Technologies is expected to provide completed Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition/Global e-Sustainability Initiative (EICC/GeSI) declarations which include documenting countries of origin for their tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold.
