Investor Expectations on Conflict Mineral Reporting

On June 11, 2018, a group of 47 institutional investors representing $1.2 trillion in assets issued a statement cautioning companies to continue to comply with the conflict minerals reporting requirements legislated in Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protections Act, which requires them to file annual reports. This statement follows previous ICCR and Alliance letters on the topic.

Investors should use this statement to engage portfolio companies that fall under the scope of the rule.
