Conflict Minerals Position Statement

GBC is committed to upholding the highest standards of corporate responsibility. GBC shares the international community's concern that metals derived from minerals mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) might be used in manufacturing supply chains and that profits from the sale of these materials may be fueling human rights violations in the DRC.

GBC will not knowingly source any product containing confilct minerals from the DRC or adjoining countries. GBC is working to put systems and processes in place that will enable GBC, with a high degree of confidence, to declare that GBC's supply chain is conflict free.
