Eastman Chemical Company is committed to conducting our business activities in accordance with the highest legal and ethical standards. We are committed to sourcing materials from suppliers that share our values.
Eastman is concerned that trade in certain minerals mined in regions of the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”) and metals refined from those minerals – tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold (“3TG”) – may be contributing to human rights abuses. We are committed to working with our suppliers to determine whether our purchased materials contain 3TG from a Covered Country, and if so, to confirm that the use of such minerals does not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups. We are also committed to fully complying with the Securities and Exchange Commission’s annual reporting requirement under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
