Firemount Textiles Ltd is committed to ensuring full compliance with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act relating to trade in conflict minerals. The DRC regions consists of the following areas; Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, The Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Firemount Textiles Ltd is committed to ensuring that any metals or other minerals contained in our products are obtained, produced and used in an environmentally and socially responsible manner and works with suppliers that share our commitment to sourcing responsibly. The supplier are requested to disclose their use of conflict minerals (Gold, Tin, Tungsten and Tantalum) if they are used in product manufactured by that company.

To that end, Firemount Textiles Ltd requires all suppliers to co-operate with our efforts to determine the source of any 3TGin products. We further expect our suppliers to make every effort to source these minerals from areas outside the DRC region.

We also commit to institute systems, procedures and strong governance processes to ensure proper implementation of these objectives across the company.

The following are steps that 3TGs found in our products are being used to fund conflict.

  1. Continued training of our suppliers related to our Conflict Mineral Policy and our expectations about responsible sourcing of 3TGs.
  2. Enforcement of contractual terms with suppliers.
  3. Conflict Mineral Policy Publicly available in our Website.

Firemount Textiles Ltd take its responsibility under the conflict minerals law very seriously and is working diligently to ensure full compliance. It is the factories responsibility to notify your customers if any of these minerals are used and the source of materials.

If any conflict materials are used by suppliers, notification should be sent to and inquiries regarding our conflict minerals policy may be directed to vinod.m@firemount.mu
