As a KGHM Group we are committed to the highest standards of products’ manufacturing, business ethics and business conduct in our day to day operations. We follow these rules in our value chain creation process, which is reflected in the KGHM Group Code of Ethics.
KGHM Group is aware that the choice of responsible suppliers, especially in sourcing conflict minerals (gold, tin, tungsten and tantalum), is of key importance for a business focused on sustainability.
To ensure the highest standards regarding sourcing gold from conflict and high risk areas, an internal responsible supply chain management system has been set up, based on the criteria set out in the LBMA Responsible Gold Guidance and LBMA Responsible Silver Guidance, as well as in accordance with The OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
In December 2015 we have formalized our responsible supply chain management system by approval of “KGHM Group Responsible Supply Chain Policy” and “KGHM Gold Supply Chain Due Diligence Procedure”.
This system was aligned with LBMA Responsible Sliver Guidance in February 2018. The system is audited on a regular basis by a 3rd party.
