Conflict Minerals Policy

Conflict minerals are gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W), tin (Sn) and other specific minerals that may be subject to RBA (Responsible Business Alliance) regulations in the future from mining areas controlled by non-government military groups or illegal military factions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or neighboring countries. The illegal mining profits obtained by the local military groups are stolen from citizens, resulting in human rights violations and environmental degradation.

Human rights and environmental protection is one of the core concepts of the social responsibility development of ASMedia Technology. In accordance with the CFSP (Conflict-Free Mineral Smelter Program), the RBA (Responsible Business Alliance), and the GeSI (Global Sustainability Initiative), we will conduct a conflict minerals survey starting in 2021 and require our suppliers to submit a "Declaration for the Non-Use Hazardous Substances" that they do not use substances from conflict areas, proving that the metals used in their products do not come from conflict zones, in order to support the social responsibility concept of insisting on not using conflict minerals.

The Company Responds to the "Do One Thing for Tamsui River" Campaign

Global climate change is intensifying, affecting not only the habitat of freshwater river systems, but also the 8 million people living in the basin. Nearly 3% of the Tamsui River is still heavily polluted, not only from people's domestic wastewater, but also from industrial wastewater from enterprises. Let's become citizens of the water system and work together to ”clean” the water environment and ecology.
