RESPONSIBLE SOURCING POLICY 

 

Supply Chain Guidelines for Minerals from High-Risk and Conflict-Affected Regions 

Dia Tisa is aware that substantial risks can have a negative effect on the handling, dealing, exporting, and mining of minerals from high-risk and conflict-affected countries. Acknowledging that Dia Tisa bears the responsibility of upholding human rights and avoiding conflict, we pledge to implement and integrate the following policy on responsible sourcing of minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas into contracts and/or agreements with suppliers. This policy will serve as a standard for conflict-sensitive sourcing practices and suppliers' risk awareness from the point of extraction to the end user. As well as adhering to any UN sanctions resolutions or, where applicable, domestic laws implementing such resolutions, we pledge to abstain from any activity that enables the financing of conflict. 

 

RSP: concerning severe abuses associated with the extraction, transport, or trade of minerals: 

  • We will not tolerate, profit from, assist in, or facilitate the commission of any kind of torture or cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment by any party while sourcing from or operating in conflict-affected or high-risk areas.

When a reasonable suspicion arises that an upstream supplier is sourcing from or connected to a party engaged in major abuses, Dia Tisa shall promptly suspend or terminate its relationship with them.  

 

RSP: concerning direct or indirect support for non-state armed groups: 

We will not put up with any kind of assistance—direct or indirect—given to armed non-state actors via the handling, exporting, trading, or transportation of minerals.

This also includes unlicensed control over mine sites, transportation routes, points where minerals are traded, and upstream actors in the supply chain; and/or unlicensed taxation or extortion of funds or minerals at points of access to mine sites, along transportation routes, or at points where minerals are traded. 

 

RSP: concerning risk management of direct or indirect support to non-state armed groups:

  • We acknowledge that the only purpose of public or private security forces at mine sites, in the surrounding communities, and/or along transportation routes should be to uphold the rule of law. This includes defending human rights, securing mine personnel, property, and equipment, and preventing illegitimate extraction and trade from interfering with the mine site or transportation routes. 
  • When Dia Tisa or any business in our supply chain hires private or public security personnel, we promise to use them in compliance with the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, or we will demand it. We shall encourage the adoption of screening procedures or take action to ensure that security personnel or units known to have committed egregious violations of human rights are not hired.

RSP: concerning risk management of public or private security forces: 

As soon as we determine a reasonable risk of direct or indirect support to private or public security forces, we will work with upstream suppliers and other stakeholders to develop, adopt, and implement a risk management plan.

RSP: concerning the payment of taxes, fees, and royalties due to governments: 

 

  • According to Dia Tisa's specific position, all taxes, fees, and royalties pertaining to the trade, export, and extraction of minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas will be paid to the appropriate governments.

Employees are required to report any illegal or dishonest fraudulent behavior they become aware of or are concerned about to Human Resources or an officer of the company. Investigations are handled by Human Resources, unless the allegations concern Human Resources, in which case a different investigator will be chosen by the company's officers. Employees are not obligated to look into the claimed wrongdoing; rather, they should use good judgment to avoid unfounded accusations. If an employee knowingly submits a false allegation of misconduct, they may face disciplinary action, which may include termination. The whistleblower's secret will be protected to the greatest extent possible; nevertheless, since a comprehensive investigation will be carried out, complete confidentiality cannot be ensured. Retaliation from the company against a whistleblower will not occur.
