Conflict Free Minerals, an Exploration with Intel

October 31, 2014

Your daily life requires vital minerals that may originate in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and other countries. These minerals are integral to the technology and other things we rely on every day. Everything from laptops, phones, and tablets to cars, airplanes, lighting, and jewelry contain tin, tantalum, tungsten, and/or gold, which are referred to as “conflict minerals”. Militias and rebel groups sometimes fund their violent conflict with money derived from the sale of these minerals.

Some conflict minerals from the DRC fuel and fund violence and the abuse of basic human rights.
Intel® products are at the heart of many mineral dependent devices. We believe we can make a difference, together with our partners, by working to eliminate conflict minerals that fund violence from our supply chain.
