Conflict Minerals Policy

What are Conflict Minerals and how are they relevant to wire harnesses and electro-mechanical assemblies? The term Conflict Minerals refers to specific raw materials that originate from a particular geographic region of the African continent. Similar to Conflict Diamonds, Conflict Minerals are mined in areas where political conflict is occurring. This conflict is believed to be funded, in part, through the mining and trading of these minerals: Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten, and Gold. Electronic components can, and in some cases might, contain these minerals that potentially originate from the conflict area.


Conflict Minerals Statement

Stantek is undertaking reasonable due diligence in our supply chain to ensure these metals are not sourced from the DRC Conflict Region or these Conflict Mines. Stantek expects our suppliers to adhere to USA law and this international convention against the use of Conflict Metals and to source these materials only from socially and environmentally responsible sources. Stantek and our suppliers do not knowingly use any metals originating from Conflict Mines, and we will fully expect our supply chain to ensure these Conflict Metals are not used.
