S2Tech supports the fight against the violence, violation of human rights and the environmental degrade during the extraction of some minerals (gold, tin, tantalum, tungsten, derivates of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, wolframite) coming from the geografic area defined as “Conflict Region”, that includes the Republic Democratic of the Congo (RDC) and adjoining countries.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted final rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to conflict minerals, as directed by the “Dodd- Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Section 1502” of 2010. The rules require that the manufacturers communicate if their products contain “Conflict Minerals” that are “necessary for the functionality or the production” of those products.
S2Tech makes a commitment to:
S2Tech has obtained, or it is at the point to get, information from the suppliers about the origin of the minerals used in the manufacturing of components and products supplied by S2Tech.
The objective is to guarantee that in the products and in the processes are used only materials and components “Conflict Free”.
In case of we have notice that an any material, part or component purchased by S2Tech use minerals extracted or refined in structures NOT “Conflic Free” appropriate actions will be implemented for the purpose to make the product “Conflict Free.”
