Like many companies in the electronics industry, Intel and our suppliers use minerals in manufacturing. We began our work more than a decade ago to ensure that our supply chain does not source certain minerals—in particular, tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold (3TG)—within the Covered Countries (Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries) from mines under the control of armed groups who exploit mine workers to fund crimes against humanity.
More recently, we have expanded our efforts to pursue responsible sourcing of all minerals used in our products, regardless of country of origin.
