Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (“Dodd-Frank Act”) requires publicly traded companies to inquire into the origin of tungsten, tantalum, tin and gold (“3TG minerals”) in their supply chains and to report on their due diligence processes and findings in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Fortive Corporation and its subsidiaries (“Fortive”) are committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, integrity and environmental responsibility. In addition, Fortive is committed to complying with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which aims to prevent the use of 3TG minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or in adjoining countries.
As part of our commitment, we exercise due diligence with our supplier consistent with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas. In addition, we communicate to our suppliers our expectation that they commit to sourcing only from conflict-free smelters. Each of our supplier is required to provide completed EICC-GeSI declarations evidencing such supplier’s commitment to the foregoing and documenting countries of origin for the 3TG minerals that it purchases.
For more information on our conflict minerals program or to report any violations of our policy by any our suppliers, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
