Plansee supports the Tungsten Industry Conflict Minerals Council.

Plansee has been a supporter member of the Tungsten Industry Conflict Minerals Council (TI-CMC) since September. The working group is an initiative of the tungsten industry dedicated to promoting greater transparency in the realm of tungsten procurement. Tungsten from TI-CMC-compliant companies is only procured from responsible, conflict-free sources.

Sustainability is a constant watchword in Plansee's purchasing policy. The requirement for socially and ecologically responsible procurement is set out in our Code of Conduct and our strict purchasing guidelines ensure that no materials are sourced from regions of conflict.

Our procurement of tantalum has already been certified as compliant with ethical and social standards by the EICC/GeSI initiative. By supporting the TI-CMC, we are also promoting conflict-free procurement of tungsten and have openly agreed to adhere to the TI-CMC Commitment. This also includes the Due Diligence Guidance for Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas as issued by the OECD and is designed to support companies in meeting their disclosure obligations in respect of the US Securities and Exchange Commission rule on conflict minerals.

Plansee's most important tungsten supplier GTP is also fully compliant with the TI-CMC Commitment and is a founding member of the working group.
