Conflict Minerals

The sale of conflict minerals (i.e. tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold, or “3TG”) can be connected to armed forces that take part in human rights abuses in the mining operations of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries. As a result, the US Congress enacted Section 1502 of the Dodd‐Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection, which aims to prevent conflict material sales from benefitting or financing these armed groups. The legislation requires publicly traded companies to release their sources of conflict minerals.

While ASSA ABLOY is not a publicly traded company, it fully supports disclosing its source of conflict materials in an effort to ensure the responsibility of products to consumers.

ASSA ABLOY Americas expects to have information available for the reporting requirements of our customers by providing an ASSA ABLOY Americas CMRT. Updates to ASSA ABLOY Americas’ conflict minerals status and policy will be posted on our sustainability website:
