Environmentally - friendly operations make sense for Scandic and its Customers

Scandic believes in operating our business in a safe, environmentally-conscious way. It's not just good for the planet — it's also a lower-cost way of operating. Among our ongoing programs:

Scandic policy on conflict minerals:
Suppliers to Scandic are expected to supply materials that are “DRC conflict-free.” “DRC conflict-free” means (1) any “conflict minerals” (gold, tin, tantalum or tungsten (collectively the "3TGs")) necessary to the functionality or production of supplied materials do not directly or indirectly finance armed groups through mining or mineral trading in the Democratic Republic of Congo or an adjoining country, or (2) any 3TGs in supplied materials are from recycled or scrap sources. Suppliers are expected to adopt policies and management systems with respect to conflict minerals and to require their suppliers to adopt similar policies and systems.
