Conflict Minerals, Slavery and Human Trafficking
Ingram Micro does not manufacture or contract to manufacture, but with access to nearly 80% of the world’s IT spend, we touch nearly every piece of technology in circulation. Many of these devices require certain minerals for production, including gold, tantalum, tin or tungsten. When these materials are sourced in conflict regions, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjacent territories, proceeds may fund armed conflicts and perpetuate human rights violations. We therefore included requirements for the responsible sourcing of minerals in our supplier code of ethics. To learn more about our position on conflict resources and human rights, please read our Global Human Rights Policy (Política Mundial de Derechos Humanos)
. Ingram Micro is a member of the Responsible Minerals Initiative
Furthermore, Ingram Micro strongly supports the eradication of slavery and human trafficking. Please see our statement on these issues in compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act of 2015 here
. When evaluating our suppliers, we’ll look closely at areas with potential for human rights risks.
