Human rights violations related to the trade in minerals from the conflict zones in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries are a focus of Rubicon Communications supply chain and environmental responsibilities. Rubicon Communications asks its suppliers not to source gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten metals from the conflict zones in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or surrounding countries. We expect suppliers to conduct their worldwide operations in a manner that does not result in labor or human rights violations, including operations that contribute to the direct financing of armed conflict.
