      Conflict Minerals

      As a supplier to the automotive industry, we are fully aware of the role we play when it comes to the sustainable procurement of key raw materials. With our customers’ help, we have embarked on a process to achieve greater transparency with regard to the origins of critical raw materials used in our products. These critical raw materials include not only natural rubber, but also so-called conflict minerals such as tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold, some of which are mined in conflict-ridden regions and used to finance armed conflicts.

      With focus on the Automotive Group, we are asking direct suppliers to fill out the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative with detailed information on the smelting and mining operations in the countries where the minerals we use originate. Our Code of Conduct for business partners encourages our direct suppliers to act responsibly and not procure their minerals from regions that directly or indirectly finance armed groups.

      We use cookies to provide you with the best experience on our website. Click on "Accept all" to allow all cookies or "Change cookie settings" to decide individually.

      Note: If you consent to the use of performance cookies, you also consent to the transfer of your personal data to insecure third countries (e.g. to the USA). These insecure third countries do not provide a level of data protection comparable to EU standards. In the case of certain third party providers, such as Google and Mouseflow, no other guarantees are offered to compensate for this deficit. There is therefore a risk that the transmission of your personal data may result in state authorities accessing your personal data without you having effective legal protection options.

      For more information on performance technologies and the transfer of data to third countries, please refer to the privacy policy.

      By clicking the "Accept all" button, you explicitly consent to this. Consent can be revoked at any time by changing the cookie settings. The further processing of data already collected before revocation by the third-party provider cannot be excluded.
