Referring to the OECD Guidance, Konica Minolta has:
We require our suppliers to cooperate with our responsible minerals approach and activities. Through our strong partnerships, we expect our suppliers to source minerals from smelters and refiners who are deemed to be compliant with the RMI's Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP). If we identify minerals that contribute to funding conflicts or relate to serious risks, we will ask our suppliers to take measures. Depending on the outcome, we will take appropriate countermeasures that may ultimately lead to termination of business with the supplier.
In addition, the EU Conflict Minerals Regulation went into effect in 2021, and the EU released a list of Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas under Regulation.
In Japan, Konica Minolta participates in JEITA’s Responsible Minerals Trade Working Group, which promotes programs on responsible mineral procurement among IT and electronics companies in Japan.
