Zebra Technologies Corporation (Zebra) diligently works with its suppliers across the globe to identify the use of tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold (3TG) in the manufacture of the components that Zebra uses in its products. Our products contain 3TG metals, and these metals are required for the products’ functionality.
Zebra Conflict Minerals programme concentrates on both the collection of relevant information and due diligence process undertaken for products that we manufacture, or contract to be manufactured on our behalf. Zebra’s process to exercise due diligence and to determine country of origin consists of the following:
1) Risk assessment of those Zebra products that contain 3TG metals necessary to the functionality or production of Zebra products;
2) Review of the data collection for completeness and accuracy for all Zebra suppliers determined to intentionally add 3TG metals in products/components supplied to Zebra;
3) Evaluation of the data collected, including smelter information reported by each source; and
4) Review and reporting of results.
As an active member of Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI), formerly known as Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI), Zebra utilises, and promotes within its supply chain, the tools and methodologies developed by the RMI for 3TG data collection and sourcing risk assessment, including Reasonable Country of Origin enquiry system.
We continue to work with all our suppliers to promote conflict-free sourcing of 3TG metals by engaging of upstream suppliers in the works of RMI and transitioning the sourcing to RMI certified conflict-free smelters.
As a Company traded on the US stock exchange, Zebra complies with the applicable sections of the Dodd Frank regulation. Zebra’s statement can be found under investor relations page. For more information, please see our Products and Materials Compliance site.
