Conflict Minerals

Hanwha Defense will not buy or use materials containing minerals produced in disputed areas to fulfill corporate social responsibilities and plan to continue to spread the conflict minerals prohibition policy through training and promotion of suppliers.

※ During the process of mining industrial minerals in ten conflict countries in Africa including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Sudan, human rights violations and environmental destruction have occurred, and sales revenues are being used to purchase weapons. As a result, the United States has issued detailed enforcement ordinances for the disputed minerals regulation, and the EU is currently in the process of enacting the dispute minerals regulation. In response to these international demands, Hanwha Defense will not use the four minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold) mined from disputed areas.
