Responsible Mineral Procurement Policy and Management System

Action for Aiming to build a more transparent mineral supply chain

In response to the enactment of the "Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act" by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, in April 2014, We established the "Conflict Minerals Management Policy" and recognized "Efforts regarding the non-use of conflict minerals" as an important issue. As a company that promotes activities and carries out tungsten smelting in Japan, we have obtained third-party certification as a "Conflict Free Smelter".

Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) publishes "Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas", where companies respect human rights with respect to mineral supply chain management. In order to avoid lending to the conflict through mineral mining activities, we are building a transparent mineral supply chain and aiming for sustainable corporate involvement in the mineral sector

As a member of the Mitsubishi Materials Group, We, Japan New Metals have established a "responsible mineral procurement policy and management system" based on our vision, values, code of conduct, etc. based on the group's corporate philosophy "For people, Society and the Earth". By operating it, we will work to build a more transparent mineral supply chain with our business partners and other stakeholders.
