Approach of Green Procurement

J-Devices structures environmental management system globally. We accept basic responsibility about our production activities that have first priority of global environmental protection.

We are promoting "Green Procurement" as one of our approach. "Green Procurement" is to purchase products, parts and materials etc. that are small environmental load from suppliers which are promoting environmental protection positively to proceed our business activities creating environment-conscious products and making consideration to reduce environmental load and risk of hazardous substances etc.

We set up prohibited and controlled substances that we use for our products, parts and materials of them. We are attempting to select materials that are non-use prohibited substances and smaller environmental load about substances that are contained in our products or used in manufacturing processes of our factories with evaluation of environmental impact before development and designing steps.

Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

There are minerals mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries (collectively, the "DRC Region") whose proceeds from their sale finance or benefit armed groups that abuse human rights in the DRC Region. Some of these minerals eventually become part of supply chains for products that are manufactured and used throughout the world.

To help address these human rights abuses, Amkor Technology and J-Devices are committed to work with our supply chains and with industry groups to improve efforts to source responsibly and provide "conflict-free" products that are assembled from materials which do not finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC Region.

We have taken the following actions as part of our commitment:

・ Joined the Responsible Business Alliance ("RBA"), formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), the world's largest industry coalition dedicated to supply chain responsibility, and we continuously engage with our customers and suppliers to improve the sustainability of our operations around the world.

・ Promote in-region initiatives that support conflict-free minerals sourcing within the DRC Region.

・ Set expectations with our suppliers to source responsibly and provide us with conflict-free materials.

・ Exercise due diligence continuously within our supply chain and encourage transparency consistent with the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.

・ Participate in the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI), formerly Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) and support Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP, formerly Conflict-Free Smelter Program, or CFSP) in which an independent third party evaluates procurement activities of a smelter or refiner and determines if the minerals processed originate from conflict-free sources.

About our BCM(Business Continuity Management)

We have developed and been implementing a Business Continuity Management (BCM) to keep up and improve the supply chain to link customers in the event of any production disturbance by large-scale natural disaster, accidents such as fire or explosion, illness spread such as pandemic or infective disease, terrorism and any political change. We would like to make continuous improvement for risk reductions together with our suppliers.
