CONFLICT FREE MINERALS
Conflict Minerals are metals such as gold, tantalum, tungsten, tin and cobalt sourced from mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo conflict areas which are controlled by non-government military groups. Illegal mining profits by military groups are contributing to human rights abuses, environmental degradation, and theft from the country's citizens. Tecate Group is committed to working with its suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chain to assure that metals used are not sourced from mines in conflict areas.
