Conflict-Free Sourcing Policy Statement
Halliburton is committed to ensuring the ethical sourcing of materials and products in our supply chain. As a leading provider of services and products to the upstream oil and natural gas industry, Halliburton will continually work towards a conflict-free supply chain, by which Halliburton would purchase products that do not contain minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country.
To support this Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative, Halliburton has developed a Conflict Minerals Program to comply with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Halliburton requires its suppliers to:
- respond to our Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI);
- perform due diligence in validating the source of conflict minerals to be used in our products; and
- purchase conflict-free materials and products
while ensuring the availability of conflict minerals resources at competitive costs.
In circumstances in which Halliburton determines that product(s) from a supplier contain conflict minerals from sources, smelters, or refiners financing conflict in the DRC or an adjoining country, Halliburton reserves the right to ask the direct supplier to seek alternative sources, or as necessary, terminate business with the supplier.
