Combating the use of conflict minerals

In 2010, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was enacted in the U.S. It required that companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges disclose information regarding conflict minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold) used in their products. The law sought to prevent armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and neighboring countries from generating funds through mining carried out by child labor, forced labor, or other inhumane means.
As a member of the Toyota Group, Daihatsu seeks to realize responsible procurement of minerals and, to this end, is working together with its partners and suppliers.
