Amkor Responsible Minerals Sourcing Statement
Recognizing that risks of significant adverse impacts which may be associated with extracting, trading, handling and exporting Conflict Minerals from Conflict-affected and High-risk Areas (CAHRAs), and recognizing that Amkor Technology, Inc. has the responsibility to respect human rights and not contribute directly to conflict, we commit ourselves to take actions to source responsibly Conflict Minerals that are used in our operations worldwide.
Conflict Minerals, as defined currently by United States and European Union legislation, are the metals tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (“3TG”). CAHRAs are identified as areas in a state of armed conflict, fragile post-conflict areas, as well as areas witnessing weak or non-existing governance and security, such as failed states, and widespread and systematic violations of international law, including human rights abuses.
As part of Amkor’s commitment to source Conflict Minerals responsibly, we have taken the following actions:
- Established and maintain practices designed to comply with the Responsible Business Alliance Code of Conduct (the “RBA Code”) a set of social, environmental and ethical industry standards that is based on international norms and standards. Participants who commit to the RBA Code must regard it as a total supply chain initiative.
- Promote initiatives that support responsible sourcing of Conflict Minerals from CAHRAs.
- Set expectations with our suppliers that Conflict Minerals provided to us from CAHRAs are sourced responsibly.
- Exercise due diligence within our supply chain based on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
- Participate in the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP), a program recognized worldwide that helps companies make informed choices about responsibly sourced Conflict Minerals in their supply chains.
In the future, other minerals in addition to 3TG may be subject to responsible sourcing requirements due to measures such as enactment of government regulation or expectations set by Amkor’s stakeholders. Accordingly, we will take appropriate actions to meet these requirements.
