Ford recognizes that we have the responsibility to respect human rights and not contribute to conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries. We are layers removed from the smelters and refiners in our supply chain. Accordingly, we rely on our direct suppliers to provide us with information concerning the origin of the tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold (3TG) contained in the parts they supply to us. Our suppliers are expected to conduct due diligence to understand the source of the 3TG used in product provided to Ford and not knowingly provide products containing minerals that contribute to conflict. We work with local governments, industry groups, cross-industry groups, international organizations and NGOs to contribute to the development of in-region solutions for validated conflict free minerals.
