We support ending the violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from a location described as the Conflict Region, which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted final rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to conflict minerals, as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”). The Dodd-Frank Act requires that all publicly traded companies subject to SEC rules report annually on the presence of conflict minerals in the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture, and demonstrate the proper level of due diligence in determining whether these minerals originated from the DRC or an adjoining country or from scrap or recycled sources.
KDP is a new public company from the combination of Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. (Keurig) and Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. (DPSG). Research conducted by DPSG concludes that there is no use of conflict minerals at DPSG which required reporting in prior years. As a private company, Keurig voluntarily prepared reports using the Rule as guidance. For historical reference, Keurig’s 2017 Conflict Minerals Report can be downloaded here.
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) (“Act”) went into effect in the State of California. The Act seeks the elimination of slavery and human trafficking from product supply chains and requires that companies disclose their efforts to ensure that their supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
