Conflict Minerals

In December 2013, the Kawasaki Group posted its Policy Regarding Procurement of Conflict Minerals on its website. This policy states that the Group has no intention whatsoever of being party to conflicts or inhumane acts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and neighboring countries through the procurement or use of the tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold—so called conflict minerals—that are produced in these countries. We also ask our suppliers to take similar efforts in the CSR Procurement Guidelines.

Policy Regarding Procurement of Conflict Minerals

Armed groups that repeatedly commit inhumane acts such as killings, looting and sexual violence may derive capital from the four minerals of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (known as “conflict minerals”) being produced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its neighboring countries. As a result, there is a concern that these conflict minerals will lead to an escalation of problems.
The Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group has no intention whatsoever of being party to such conflicts or inhumane acts through the procurement or use of these conflict minerals in consideration of respect for human rights. Going forward, efforts will be made to tackle the issue of conflict minerals in close liaison with customers and suppliers.
