As a socially responsible company, Rotary Systems has concern for the well-being of people and communities. We conduct business fairly and ethically, respect human rights, comply with laws and regulations, and follow a rigorous Code of Conduct.
Rotary Systems supports the efforts of human rights organizations to end violence and atrocities in central Africa, in particular the Democratic Republic of Congo Region. It has been widely reported that the major driver of this violence is the natural abundance of “Conflict Minerals” (i.e. tin, tungsten, tantalum, gold). Armed groups fight for control of mines in this region and use forced labor to mine and sell the minerals, which in turn funds ongoing violence.
In August 2012, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission approved the final rule regarding the sourcing of conflict minerals as defined in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Section 1502. Under this rule, publicly traded companies must report annually to the SEC the presence of conflict minerals originating from the DRC Region in either the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture, or using the production process.
Rotary Systems works to comply with our customers’ requests with respect to the Rotary Systems supply chain and we encourage our suppliers to do the same.
