To show Emory University's committment to buying conflict-free electronic products from suppliers.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), which focuses on reforming U.S. financial regulation, was signed into law on July 21, 2010. Section 1502 of this “Act” imposes reporting requirements on U.S. companies regarding their use of certain “conflict minerals.” This section of the “Act” was intended to address Congressional concerns related to the exploitation resulting from the purchase of certain minerals originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries. Such purchases, by US companies, would help finance the conflict, characterized by extreme levels of violence, in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo and a continuing humanitarian crisis.
Emory University recognizes the humanitarian crisis in the Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo by supporting the intent of the legislation through the purchase of conflict-free electronic products from contracted electronic suppliers in compliance with the reporting requirements of Section 1502. In the future Emory University may offer preference to those suppliers who have made a commitment to conflict-free supply chains when quality and cost performance are equal or superior.
