Conflict Minerals

Dear customers and supplier of the company centrotherm clean solutions

In accordance with section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, companies noted on the stock exchanges in the USA are obliged to provide information about their use of so called conflict minerals. These include tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold from the Democratic Republic of the Congo an their neighbouring countries (Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia) the so called DRC-Region.

centrotherm clean solutions GmbH is aware of its social responsibility in terms of the environment, safety, health and observance of human rights. Our business conduct reflects our commitment to peaceful and sustainable use of our worldwide resources. We do not directly import conflict minerals, nor do we have any information that minerals that originate from this conflict region are used in our products.

centrotherm clean solutions GmbH supports this initiative and undertakes to only procure materials from proven conflict-free origins. All suppliers of materials that fall under this initiative must confirm and prove the conflict-free origin of the materials.

17 Goals of the United Nations

It's your decision

Climate change, poverty and hunger, flight and migration are issues that concern us all. We decide whether we buy products such as jeans, chocolate or mobile phones that people have produced under dignified and fair conditions. We decide how much energy we consume. We decide how we deal with the resources and treasures of nature. Our lifestyle and our way of doing business have direct consequences - for us, others and future generations. It is time to rethink. We are all called upon: politicians, industries and each and every one of us.

What can we contribute to protect the climate, to ensure fair standards in the workplace and to fight against hunger and poverty? The Agenda 2030 with its 17 goals for sustainable development serves as a guide. This was adopted on 25 September 2015 by 193 heads of state and government at the United Nations Summit in New York. Agenda 2030 is a "Pact for the Future". With this pact, the states commit themselves to ensuring that all people can live in dignity by the year 2030. To achieve this goal, we in Germany must also change our way of life.

Agenda 2030 lists five core messages that precede the 17 goals as principles for action: 1. Focus on human dignity, 2. Save the planet, 3. Promote prosperity for all, 4. Foster peace and 5. Establish global partnerships.

The goals take all three dimensions of sustainability - social, environmental, economic - equally into account and apply to all countries of the world: industrialized, emerging and developing countries. It is clear that we all share responsibility for the world.

In order to implement Agenda 2030 in Germany as well, the Federal Government adopted the German Sustainability Strategy in 2016 and updated it in 2018. In this strategy, it defines the contributions it is making and will make to achieve the sustainable development goals. The strategy covers the entire spectrum of sustainability issues, from higher education qualifications, the reduction of income disparities between men and women, the securing of social housing, to trade opportunities for so-called developing countries.

The success of Agenda 2030 depends on everyone taking part - not only states and organisations, but each and every individual. Everyone can make a contribution. The more people participate, the more likely it is that an international partnership for sustainable development will be established. Because only together we can shape a better, fairer and more sustainable world.
