As a responsible company, Republic Steel supports the goal of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 to end violence and human rights violations in conjunction with the mining of certain minerals from areas referred to as the "conflict region," primarily located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Act was established to stop armed groups in the conflict region from benefitting from the sourcing of conflict minerals in these areas.
The minerals defined as conflict minerals consist of gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten, along with their derivatives.
Republic Steel values and supports the efforts of ending violence and human rights violations in conflict areas by attempting to source conflict-free products from its suppliers.
