At MLI, we are committed to creating sustainable opportunities for our employees and a sustainable world for this and future generations. It’s not only the right thing to do; it’s critical to the long- term health and financial strength of our business and the communities we operate in. Every year we evaluate the social, environmental and economic impact of our business and set new goals.
MLI supports the efforts and Code of Conduct of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) which promotes social, envionmental and ethical industry standards.
This includes responsible sourcing of minerals so as not to directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups that are perpetrators of serious human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country. MLI exercises due diligence with the selection and monitoring of our direct supply chain to avoid procurement of these Conflict Metals.
Please note that due diligence only provides reasonable – not absolute – guarantees about the origin of the conflict minerals in our products. MLI depends on supply chain information provided by our direct suppliers in assessing the source of such minerals, the veracity of which can be difficult to ascertain.
We are committed to providing a safe, secure and healthy workplace for our employees, contractors, visitors and the communities in which we operate.
MLI is also committed to respecting human rights in our operations, our supply chain, our business partnerships and our products. We believe child labor, forced labor, or human trafficking in any form—including slave labor, prison labor, indentured servitude, or bonded labor are unacceptable.
We are committed to providing long-term, fulfilling work in a manner that prioritizes the well being of our employees and local communities.
We are committed to managing the environmental impacts of our operation.
We are committed to contributing to the economic health of the communities in which we operate and promoting STEM education programs.
