Chip Shot: Intel Welcomes Conflict-Mineral Proposal from European Commission

Today, the European Commission adopted a proposal to establish a framework for supply chain due diligence and self-certification of responsible importers of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold originating in conflict-affected areas. Christian Morales, vice president and general manager of Intel Europe, Middle East and Africa, said “Intel welcomes the Commission proposal for EU action to address this important issue. At Intel, we take this matter very seriously. Tackling what initially looked to be a near-impossible challenge several years ago, we are committed to implement systems required to achieve a conflict-free supply chain that we have today. We are conscious it is a long journey which needs the collaborative effort of many to succeed.”  Read this blog post and visit the conflict-free minerals press kit for more information.
