At PRISMA, we apply our core values to our business activities every day: honesty and courage in our dealings with Customers and Suppliers around the world, accountability and a relentless pursuit of service excellence.

Consistent with our core values, PRISMA:

  • Recognizes its responsibility not to support or contribute to the violence and human rights violationsassociated with the mining of certain minerals in Central Africa described as the “Conflict Region [1]”.

  • Supports the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, the related U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rule and the EICC-GeSi Conflict-Free Minerals Standards that promote transparency and consumer awareness regarding the use of “Conflict Minerals [2]” and seeks to cut direct and indirect funding of armed groups engaged in conflict and human rights abuses in the Conflict Region.

  • Encourages its Suppliers to adopt similar policies and management systems with respect to Conflict Minerals and to drive those efforts throughout their supply chain, to ensure that the specified metals are being sourced only from mines and smelters outside the “Conflict Region” or mines and smelters within the Conflict Region which have been certified by an independent third party as “conflict free.”

[1]Conflict Region” includes the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Zambia.

[2]Conflict Minerals” include Columbite‐Tantalite (Tantalum), Cassiterite (Tin), Gold, Wolframite (Tungsten) and any derivatives from these minerals.
