Our commitment to sustainable development extends to issues further down in the supply chain, where we try to prevent human rights abuses and financing of conflicts in the extractive sector. Global supply chains in the lighting industry are complex, typically with more than seven tiers between the finished product and the source of raw materials. However, we believe that through strong multistakeholder partnerships, we can make a difference. As part of the Signify Conflict Minerals program, we implement measures in our supply chain to ensure that our products are not directly or indirectly funding atrocities in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We support and follow the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
