Xirgo takes its social responsibilities very seriously, through, among other things, the establishment and funding of the Xirgo Endowment, and its commitment to responsible sourcing.
With respect to responsible sourcing, Xirgo strongly supports the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and similar standards that have been endorsed by a consortium of nations, as well as the United Nations, intended to reduce or eliminate the exploitation of minerals, including gold, cassiterite (the metal ore from which tin is extracted), wolframite (the metal ore from which tungsten is extracted) or columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan (the metal ore from which tantalum is extracted), or their derivatives, that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, The Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda or Zambia, to fund armed groups that engage in conflict and human rights abuses (“Conflict Minerals”).
Xirgo will seek assurance and certification from its suppliers that the products, components and materials they provide do not contain Conflict Minerals.
Supplier information will be collected using the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition – Global e-Sustainability Initiative Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.
Xirgo will adopt and implement industry standard policies for selecting and monitoring its suppliers that further these objectives.
Proposition 65 WARNING: Xirgo products contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
