"Complying with laws and regulations" is one of the challenges of Vignal's CSR strategy.
The United States, Europe and the OECD have clarified or legislated on the sourcing of gold, tin, tantalum, tungsten, and cobalt from high-risk areas.
It is therefore quite natural that Vignal sets out in its Code of Conduct fro Responsible Purchasing its expectations of its suppliers. We are aware of our contribution to protect durably of human rights.
The subject is monitored by our teams so that everyone exercises their due diligence (1) throughout the supply chain for these minerals.
Vignal is confident about the sincere commitment of each of its suppliers to meet the challenges of our CSR; respect people, the planet and organizations.
According to the OECD (The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development):
- Implement a risk-based approach.
- Take a phased approach.
- Mitigate risks - without automatically excluding high-risk areas.
