Greenbrook Electrical policy on conflict minerals
In August 2012, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued its final rules
regarding “Conflict Minerals” (known as ‘3TG’ – Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold) as defined in and
required by section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. As a
result, many companies are now focusing on whether and to what extent their products contains
Conflict Minerals and whether such Conflict Minerals come from the Democratic Republic of Congo
and named adjoining countries.
GreenBrook Electrical takes it social responsibilities seriously both in terms of its own employees and
those companies who it deals with. Greenbrook will not engage in business with suppliers or
customers who do not meet the core requirements detailed in the Greenbrook Electrical Ethical
Trading Policy, and will terminate any contract with a supplier or customer who is found to be noncompliant.
Managing our obligations in relation to conflict minerals is part of this Ethical policy
Greenbrook is committed to working with its suppliers to identify products that are impacted.
Greenbrook will not buy products and materials containing 3TG minerals directly from conflict mines
Greenbrook will ask our suppliers to work towards ensuring that any 3TG minerals contained in the
products and materials supplied to Greenbrook originate from conflict free sources
Like many other companies tracing conflict minerals, takes time for a company of our size to collect
the information needed for us to fully understand our use of conflict minerals and therefore be able
to address all related concerns.
