Conflict-free, ethical supply of raw materials

Our company is a pioneer in the area of proven conflict-free raw material supply in the tungsten industry. We are in constant contact with relevant organisations (OECD, Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI), EU), and we are a founding member of the Tungsten Industry – Conflict Mineral Council (TI-CMC) and a member of the ITRI Tin Supply Chain Initiative (iTSCi). The latter provides a traceability mechanism to trace the way of concentrates from the mines to our smelting plant. Annual audits by independent auditors on behalf of the CFSI demonstrate our responsible purchasing policy as Conflict Free Smelter.
We support our customers in fulfilling the obligations imposed by the US Dodd Frank Act, Section 1502 for due diligence and supplies from conflict-affected areas.

We are proud to be part of the conflict-free tungsten supply chain of the new Fairphone 2.
