Fujitsu Group Policy on Conflict Minerals
The Fujitsu Group regards corporate responsibility with respect to conflict minerals(*) as an important CSR issue and, accordingly, formulated its “Fujitsu Group Policy on Conflict Minerals" in March 2018. The Policy stipulates that the Fujitsu Group shall remove high-risk conflict minerals — those associated with fostering conflict, forced labor, or human rights violations — from its products, components, and supply chain.
(*)Conflict minerals are minerals whose mining or trading finances armed groups and fosters conflict, or that are closely related to such issues as human rights abuses or labor issues. The U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges to report the use of conflict minerals to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This applies to conflict minerals such as tantalum, tin, tungsten, gold and any other minerals determined to be conflict minerals by the U.S. State Department where those minerals are mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or neighboring countries.
