Assessing human rights risks in the supply chain

Since 2017, we have taken a self-assessment approach based on major international standards in alignment with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

CSR self-assessment


Conducting regular supplier audits

We have created a CSR self-assessment system to help our suppliers implement a “plan, do, check, act” process. This ensures that all our suppliers meet the same standards regarding human rights, environmental conservation, health and safety, and other key areas. We can also support in any areas that require improvements to meet the standard.

Conflicts Minerals rule


Complying to the Conflicts Minerals rule

We support the Conflict Minerals rule adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2012 which requires companies to disclose conflict minerals from the Democratic Republic of Congo and surrounding countries. We are constantly working to improve transparency in our supply chain to ensure responsible mineral sourcing practices and conduct annual investigations into responsible mineral resource procurement in collaboration with our suppliers.
