    MAPS Conflict Minerals Statement & Policy



    MAPS is a company with a strong commitment to social responsibility. We believe that as a sustainable company, we need our suppliers and contractors to join us in this commitment, based on a share set of values and principles.

    There has been increased awareness of violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries. MAPS shares the deep concern about sources of minerals from these conflict zones and is therefore committed to make its products DRC conflict-free and obtain full transparency throughout its supply chain.

    MAPS supports the goals and objectives of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which aims to prevent the use of conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country as defined in the Act (Conflict Region). Conflict minerals included; columbite-tantalite (coltan) (i.e., tantalum), cassiterite (i.e., tin), gold, wolframite (i.e., tungsten) or their derivatives and could expand to include any other mineral or their derivative determined by the U.S. Secretary of State to be financing the DRC conflict. The Act requires companies to perform due diligence with respect to the sourcing of conflict minerals and to file annual reports relating to use of conflict minerals. MAPS comply with the conflict minerals diligence and reporting obligations required under the Act.

    MAPS suppliers, including contractors and external manufacturers, shall have a policy to reasonably commit that the tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold in the products they manufacture do not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups that are perpetrators of serious human right abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country. MAPS suppliers shall exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of these minerals and shall make their due diligence measures available to MAPS upon MAPS’ request.

    MAPS has either obtained, or is in the process of obtaining, information from suppliers concerning the origin of the metals that are used in the manufacture of MAPS Inc.’ products. Based upon information provided by our suppliers, MAPS does not knowingly use metals derived from the Conflict Region that directly or indirectly benefit armed groups that are perpetrators of serious human rights abuses. If such sources are identified, MAPS will take actions to remove them from its supply chain.
