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 ASMedia Technology in the development of social responsibility. 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 survey on conflict minerals starting in 2021 and require suppliers to submit a "Conflict-Free Metal Guarantee Certificate” that they do not use substances from conflict areas, proving that the metals used in their products do not come from conflict areas, in order to support the social responsibility concept of insisting on not using conflict minerals.

The global climate change has intensified, not only impacting the biological habitats of fresh water river systems, but also affecting the lives of 8 million people in the basin. Nearly 3% of the Tamsui River is still heavily polluted. The source of the pollution is not only domestic water waste discharged by residents, but also industrial water waste from enterprises. Become a citizen of the water system and work together to ”clean” the water environment and ecosystem.
