Conflict minerals

Some electronic devices in our products contain tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold. These metals are known as ‘conflict minerals’ because they may origin from the Democratic Republic of Congo where illegal armed groups control some mines and transit routes.

Getinge’s position is that the extraction of raw materials never should, directly or indirectly, support these armed groups.

We are committed to having a conflict-free supply chain. When conflict minerals are used, we will scrutinize our supply chain to ensure that these minerals are supplied by conflict-free sources.
