Conflict-Free Minerals Declaration
The coverage on human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and environmental issues resulting from the mining of minerals, including tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W), tin (Sn), and gold (Au) has caused wide public concern.
At 5N Plus, not only do we comply with all national and other applicable laws and regulations, we also actively promote initiatives for managing resources responsibly and remain the environmental leader within our industry by minimizing the impact of our operations and products on the environment. Regarding responsible sourcing of raw materials used to produce our specialty metal and chemical products, we do not believe they originate from the DRC and its adjoining countries, based on currently available information.
Do not hesitate to contact our Environmental Health, Safety and Sustainability (EHS&S) department should you require additional information.
