Policy on Conflict Minerals
Pirelli shares international concerns about the conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, and we are working to ensure that the mining of the minerals that end up in our products does not contribute to human rights violations in the region.
US law requires certain US-listed companies to disclose the use of conflict minerals (Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum or Gold) in their products.
Pirelli is not a US-listed company, but complies with requests from customers conducting country of origin verification or due diligence in their supply chains.
In order to facilitate the disclosure for our customers, Pirelli conducts country of origin verification or due diligence in our supply chain, for products/materials that may contain any of the minerals in question by asking our vendors to supply the information requested in this questionnaire (http://www.responsiblemineralsinitiative.org/reporting-templates/cmrt/)
We expect all of our manufacturing suppliers to provide conflict minerals that are sourced responsibly. When evidence appears that conflict minerals are being sourced from the covered countries, Pirelli works with suppliers to encourage them to source from smelters certified as conflict-free. Pirelli reserves the right to cease working with a supplier who refuses to cooperate in helping the international community ensure human rights in the Congo region.
