Ovako is committed to sourcing responsibly and considers mining activities that fuel conflict as unacceptable. Ovako’s efforts related to conflict minerals are aligned to the work of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition® (EICC®) and Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI). The EICC’s and GeSI’s work includes the Conflict-Free Smelter Program and the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.
In accordance with the Non-Conflict Minerals Act, By U.S. law H. R. 4173, section 1502, scrap and alloying elements purchased from our providers are neither produced from a conflict material (3T&G), nor has its origin from a conflict region. By conflict region Ovako is referring to Congo and the 9 adjoining countries that are identified in the Dodd Frank Conflict Mineral Legislation. If any change in sourcing of scrap and alloying elements for our products occurs it will be communicated to our customers.
Please be advised that an updated version of the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template, Revision 4.20, has been completed and can be found below.
