Commitment to Ethical Business
Human Trafficking and Slavery
Versum Materials is opposed to slavery, human trafficking and the use of forced labor of any kind. We have established policies and processes within our businesses and supply chains in support of this position.
Human rights are embedded in our Code of Conduct, which states that we follow all labor and employment laws in the countries in which we operate, including laws pertaining to child labor and employee rights, such as freedom of association, privacy, and equal opportunity employment.
Our suppliers are also required to abide by our Code of Conduct in their business dealings with us. We periodically assess and review our suppliers for compliance risks, including for labor and Code of Conduct issues.
Versum Materials is concerned that the trade of Conflict Minerals mined in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo may be fueling human rights atrocities in the region. We have evaluated the potential for Conflict Minerals to be part of our supply chain, and have reviewed our product lines and identified those that might contain these minerals. We undertake a good faith Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) for each of our covered products. Where required, we conduct supply chain due diligence in accordance with OECD guidance, and engage in discussions regarding conflict free sourcing with any suppliers who have been identified as providing us with materials that either contain or potentially contain Conflict Minerals
