In 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued rules implementing the conflict minerals disclosure provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Under these rules, publicly traded companies must report annually on their use of "conflict minerals" originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or any of the DRC’s adjoining countries.
The definition of “conflict minerals” refers to gold, as well as tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future.
ACME Portable supports the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in the DRC and surrounding countries. We are committed ethical business conduct and to the responsible sourcing of minerals throughout our supply chain.
