Danaher Corporation and its subsidiaries (“Danaher”) are committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, integrity and environmental responsibility.
Danaher is committed to complying with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, as well as Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which aims to prevent the use of minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or in adjoining countries (“conflict minerals”).
Suppliers to Danaher are, with respect to smelters and refiners ("smelters") in Danaher's supply chain that source from the DRC or adjoining countries, required to commit to sourcing only from smelters that have obtained a "conflict-free" designation from an independent, third-party auditor. Each supplier to Danaher is required to provide completed Responsible Minerals Initiative Conflict Minerals Reporting Template declarations evidencing such supplier’s commitment to the foregoing and documenting countries of origin for the tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold that it purchases.
