Duncan Co fully supports the humanitarian goals of the Dodd Frank Act – eliminating illegal mineral trading and the funding of armed conflict while supporting legitimate commercial ventures. Duncan Co purchases finished goods from manufacturers and does not directly purchase any Conflict Minerals from any source. Since the supply chain for Conflict Minerals is complex, we are committed to working with our supply chain to increase transparency regarding the origin and traceability of minerals contained in our products with the goal of ensuring that all products sold by Duncan Co to our customers are “DRC Conflict Free.”
Duncan’s Expectations of Suppliers
Suppliers may not include in any products sold to Duncan Co any tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold mined in the DRC or adjoining countries that fund armed conflict.
Suppliers are required to develop Conflict Minerals policies, due diligence frameworks, and management systems, consistent with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) guidelines and to drive those efforts throughout their supplier chain.
