CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

Responsible Procurement

Empowering Responsible Sourcing and Supplier Accountability

Moxa has a longstanding policy of working proactively to ensure that the actions we take to manufacture and distribute products do not violate the laws or customs of the regions we do business in or impinge negatively on the rights of others. We are committed to avoiding the use of conflict minerals in our supply chain through compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Conflict Minerals Rule.

Supply Chain Management

We believe working with long-term strategic suppliers who share the same standards regarding quality, ethics, and sustainability is vital in creating a positive impact. We want to make a difference through sustainable supply management and responsible sourcing by working closely with our suppliers and requiring them to provide a completed "Conflict Minerals Reporting Template" that declares the absence of controlled materials in components supplied to Moxa.

We expect our suppliers to:

  • Source materials from DRC conflict-free minerals
  • Comply with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and provide the “Conflict Mineral Reporting Template” and all necessary declarations
  • Establish their own due diligence program to ensure conflict-free supply chains
  • Ensure all parts used to manufacture Moxa products originated from certified conflict-free smelters compliant to the EICC CFS protocol based on the CFS Compliant Smelter List

Conflict-Free Supply Chain

We are taking steps to ensure that the use of cassiterite (tin ore), wolframite (tungsten ore), coltan (tantalum ore), gold, and their derivatives meet Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, passed by the US Congress in 2010. Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), requires companies to disclose whether the products they manufacture contain conflict minerals necessary to the functionality or production of those products.

We recognize that the SEC final rule for Section 1502 mandates our direct and indirect suppliers to undertake due diligence across their global supply chains. 

The mining of certain minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and its neighboring countries partially contributes to human rights abuses and the financing of violent conflicts in this region. Moxa is committed to avoiding the use of conflict minerals in our supply chain through compliance with the SEC’s Conflict Minerals Rule.
