Responsible Sourcing of Minerals

Basic Policy

As part of its corporate social responsibility, the FANUC Group is committed to acting in a socially responsible manner regarding the procurement of minerals.
The FANUC Group adheres to the “OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas,” in order to respect human rights and avoid contributing to conflicts, by not sourcing mineral resources such as tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold and cobalt, in its procurement activities, which are mined in conflict-affected areas and high-risk areas such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, where there are concerns of human rights violation in such forms as forced labor or child labor, environmental exploitation, and actions which may fund armed groups.

Approach to Conflict Minerals

The FANUC Group surveys approximately 500 suppliers regarding their use of conflict minerals. If a problem is found, we change the source we procure from to avoid using conflict minerals.
