The concept of “conflict minerals” was introduced in 2010 by the US Federal Law “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Act, Section 1502”.
Conflict minerals are defined as gold, columbite-tantalite, cassiterite, wolframite and their derivatives tantalum, tin and tungsten (3TG) originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) region.
The purpose of this regulation is to avoid the financing of organisation involved in the violent conflicts in the region, beside discourage exploitation and human rights violation finalised to the extraction of these minerals although their toxicological properties are not concerned.
LATI’s attention to a responsible and sustainable development has led to a commitment that goes beyond European Union regulations and has adopted the company policy linked below regarding the voluntary adoption of the principles reported in the “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Act, Section 1502”, consequently implementing a series of preventive and communication measures along the supply chain.
