Respect for human rights is a matter of course for 英飞凌. Avoiding conflict minerals in the supply chain means that we are contributing towards the prevention of human rights abuses.
英飞凌 is not listed on US stock exchanges and t在这里fore not legally required to publish a report on conflict minerals. 不过, 作为负责任矿产倡议的成员, we uphold our voluntary commitment to responsibility within the supply chain. 与此同时, our comprehensive declaration on the use of conflict minerals supports those of our customers who are required to perform due diligence within their supply chains to fulfill their reporting duties in accordance with the requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Since 英飞凌 does not source these metals directly from mines or smelters, we identify their origin in close cooperation with our direct suppliers. 为了这个目的, we have introduced a standardized process throughout the organization based on the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas in order to create the necessary transparency within our supply chain. Our targets 和我们的 requirements of our supply chain are set forth in the 英飞凌 冲突矿产政策 and the Supplier Code concerning the Responsible Sourcing of Conflict Minerals. 阅读我们的冲突矿物政策 和我们的 Supplier Code for a Responsible Sourcing of Conflict Minerals.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo has around 50 percent of global cobalt reserves and produces the largest quantity of cobalt in the world.
作为一个负责任的公司, 因此,英飞凌, 在自愿基础上, expanded its activities relating to social and environmental responsibility in the supply chain by including cobalt in our due diligence program for the responsible procurement of minerals. 在我们调查的过程中, we identified all suppliers of material containing cobalt and questioned them about cobalt smelting in the supply chain. 为了确保透明度, we are making the result of our review available to our customers in the form of a Cobalt Declaration (Cobalt 报告 Template).
