Conflict Minerals Policy

Certain minerals mined from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its adjoining countries pose major problems internationally in that they are a source of funds for armed groups and exacerbate conflict, human-rights abuses, and environmental degradation. The Rengo Group implements measures for not sourcing or using raw materials containing conflict minerals, namely tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold, that have been extracted or brokered by armed groups.
