Tellab - Supply Chain: Conflict Minerals Policy

  1. 1. Supply Chain: Conflict Minerals PolicyAbout conflict mineralsCertain materials – such as tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold – are essential for all kinds ofelectronics. These substances come from mines, many located in or near the DemocraticRepublic of Congo.Profits from some mines fund groups that engage in violence, which is why these materials arecommonly referred to as conflict minerals. (Note: whether or not they come from warzones,these materials are always called conflict minerals.)In July 2010 the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Regulation and Consumer Protection Act becameU.S. law, prompting companies to respond to new reporting requirements from the Securityand Exchange Commission.PolicyAs part of our commitment to treat all people with integrity and respect, Tellabs will work withour key suppliers to use conflict-free sources of materials.All Tellabs products contain at least one conflict mineral. While Tellabs does not source metalsdirectly from mines or smelters, we will work to trace conflict minerals to their sources throughseveral layers in our supply chain. Tellabs will use industry best practice as we do so.We will continue to report on our progress towards using conflict-free sources of thesematerials. We will disclose our findings on www.tellabs.com and in Tellabs Annual Report.© 2011 Tellabs. All rights reserved. Document ID: 00478 Rev. 01 Eff. Date: Dec-05-2011
