The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires retailers and manufacturers doing business in California to disclose efforts to eradicate modern day slavery and human trafficking from its direct supply chain.

One of the major issues in environmental conservation is that although there has been progress towards the realization of “environmentally friendly products” in manufacturing, it is vital that the environmental burdens associated with the components and materials for the products are reduced to achieve its realization. In recent years laws controlling harmful chemicals contained in products, such as RoHS Directive, REACH regulation and other applicable regulations, have been strengthened all over the world. It is essential for JCM Group to co-operate closely with our customers in order to realize our green procurement and we have updated the JCM Group Green Procurement Guidelines to have their cooperation.

In July 2010, a new financial regulation (Dodd-Frank Act) was passed into law in the United States of America, stating that “the use of minerals produced in the conflict zone of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), is deemed to be indirect support of inhumane conduct in that country”. As a result of the adoption of this regulation relating to minerals produced in DRC, companies listed on any US Stock Exchange are obligated to report to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as to whether their products contain conflict minerals. JCM Group is not listed on any stock exchanges in the U.S., but we have taken steps to prohibit the use of conflict minerals, which have a indirect link with human rights abuses, environmental damage, corruption or illegality, in order to respect the purpose of this law and to fulfill our role in our supply chain, While complying with regulations relating to conflict minerals, we ask our suppliers for a report on their use of conflict minerals contained in their raw materials, parts and units composing our products. We make it clear and keep it informed that the use of such minerals is unacceptable and ensure that our products are composed of conflict-free minerals.
