AMKOR TECHNOLOGY, INC. CONFLICT MINERALS
Amkor Technology, Inc. takes very seriously the worldwide concerns that metals mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) may be making their way into the electronics supply chain and profits from this mining may be financing human rights violations in the eastern region of the DRC. Amkor is committed to a policy (i) that our supply chain does not knowingly contribute to human rights violations in the DRC and (ii) that the gold, tantalum, tungsten, or tin that we procure from our suppliers is not derived from ore sourced from mines in the conflict areas of the DRC or illegally taxed on trade routes which are controlled by non-government military groups or unlawful military factions.
In support of this effort, Amkor:
- Has developed and implemented procedures that are designed to demonstrate that the metals we procure and sourced in accordance with this policy;
- Requires that our suppliers verify in writing that they have procedures in place to demonstrate that the metals they procure are sourced in accordance with this policy; and
- Requires that our suppliers, to the extent reasonably practicable, document the routes taken and the intermediaries involved from mind of origin to final product.
