Dodd-Frank Act Section 1502
Evonik Corporation is not a publicly-traded company in the United States and is therefore not required to comply with the due diligence and reporting obligations of the conflict minerals provision within the federal Dodd-Frank Act. However, many of our customers are publicly traded and subject to this law. In order to assist our customers, we are voluntarily attempting to determine the use and source of any metals intentionally added to our products which are designated as conflict minerals by the Dodd-Frank Act. Our intent is to meet our customer demands for conflict free products.
Evonik Corporation recognizes the importance of corporate responsibility and the need to meet the prevailing requirements as a reliable and responsible business partner. In this regard, the Evonik Group’s annual Corporate Responsibility (CR) Report sets forth our CR policies, strategy, and plans for implementation (which are patterned on the social and environmental principles of the United Nations and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development).
