Renner Policy on Conflict Minerals

Current as of March, 2017


In August 2012, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued its final rules regarding “Conflict Minerals” (known as “3TG” – Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold) as defined in and required by section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”). As a result, many companies are now focusing on whether and to what extent their products contain so-called Conflict Minerals and whether such minerals come from the Democratic Republic of Congo and the adjoining countries named in the Act.

Renner strives to be a good citizen. We are committed to ensuring the health, safety and protection of people who come into contact with our products and business, and we require high social, environmental and human rights standards among our suppliers. Managing our obligations in relation to Conflict Minerals is a part of this corporate responsibility.

Renners commitments

We are working towards ensuring that our products do not contain Conflict Minerals that have been sourced from mines that support or fund conflict within the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries. Therefore we are committed to:

  • not buying directly products and materials containing 3TG from Conflict Minerals
  • asking our suppliers to work towards ensuring that any Conflict Minerals contained in the products supplied to Renner do not originate from Conflict Mines.

In addition, we are committed to engaging with our customers regarding their disclosure obligations.

Renners measures

In working towards these commitments, we have taken a number of steps that include:

  • requiring our suppliers to implement a policy regarding Conflict Minerals
  • exercise due diligence to investigate the source of these minerals.
