Sustainability Is Good Business 

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. Every year we set new and more aggressive goals. 

MLI supports the efforts of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) which promote 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.
