Gold, along with tin, tantalum and tungsten are defined conflict minerals.
In 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted rules implementing the conflict minerals provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), which require public companies to disclose certain information when a company manufactures or contracts to manufacture products containing Conflict Minerals that are necessary to the functionality or production of those products if the company has reason to believe that the Conflict Minerals may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the adjoining countries of Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia (the Covered Countries). The term “Conflict Minerals” is defined in the conflict minerals rules and refers to tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (the Conflict Minerals or 3TG).
Lockheed Martin supports the Dodd-Frank Act’s objective of preventing armed groups in the Covered Countries from benefitting from the sourcing of Conflict Minerals from that region. We are committed to responsible sourcing of materials for our products, including the sourcing of Conflict Minerals, and we expect that our suppliers are likewise committed to responsible sourcing.
We have established a compliance plan that is designed to follow the framework established by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
We expect our suppliers to take steps to determine if their products contain Conflict Minerals and if so, implement supply chain due diligence processes to identify sources of these minerals and support efforts to eradicate the use of Conflict Minerals which directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries.
