Responsible Minerals Procurement Policy

Responsible Minerals Procurement Policy

There are concerns that the minerals such as tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold (3TG) and cobalt
in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries or Conflict Affected and
High-Risk Areas (CAHRAs) can finance armed groups in those conflict regions through illegal
mining and trading of minerals and raise human rights abuses or labor issues such as child
labor or forced labor. As one way of fulfilling its social responsibility in its supply chain,

TECHRECO Group implements appropriate measures to procure minerals, ensuring that we
do not become involved in such issues through the trade of minerals used in our products.
TECHRECO Group requests suppliers to understand TECHRECO's procurement policy and
cooperate with the survey in the procurement process. Furthermore, TECHRECO Group
requests suppliers to procure minerals from the refiners/smelters approved by globally
recognized frameworks such as RMI*1.

Activities

1. TECHRECO Group establishes management system of minerals procurement complied
with OECD due diligence guidance.
2. TECHRECO Group promotes "Responsible Minerals Procurement" throughout supplychain in collaboration with industry organization.
3. TECHRECO Group identifies and evaluates risks by using globally standardized programs

4. When any problems are found in the mineral procurement process, TECHRECO Group
stops using the said mineral and requests the upstream companies in the supply chain to
take any corrective actions.
5. When TECHRECO Group identifies the possibility of a covered risk*3, we will request
appropriate corrective action from our suppliers.
6. TECHRECO Group discloses results of mineral procurement survey upon customers'
request.
