As we are committed to respect and protect Human rights and Labor rights, we work to protect and safeguard the well-being of people throughout the value chain. Nordic Semiconductor does not directly purchase raw minerals from the mining sites, but is committed to meet internationally accepted due diligence standards for sourcing of minerals.
Nordic Semiconductor has worked with the issue of Conflict Minerals since 2010 and engages regularly with the suppliers to provide accurate and transparent information on the origin of minerals to concerned stakeholders. Identification of smelters, and assessment of country of origin of the minerals, are investigated based on the supply chain reporting scheme set out by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI), an initiative by Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI).
Nordic Semiconductor is a member of RBA and RMI and requires all subcontractors follow the RBA Code of Conduct and its provisions to conflict minerals.
Nordic Semiconductor’s Conflict Minerals Policy
As part of Nordic Semiconductor’s commitment to social responsibility and compliance to the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct, it is our policy to only have part in trade where the respect for human rights is upheld, and where trade is not contributing to violent conflicts. It is our goal that our products and our supply chain shall be “conflict free”, i.e. free of materials that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed entities.
