EcoVadis Sustainability Rating
As part of TSE’s sustainability initiatives, we were audited by EcoVadis in 2015, which resulted in a score of 91% in this prestigious business sustainability rating.
EcoVadis provides evidence-based sustainability assessments for companies within global supply chains, rating each business across important environmental, social, and ethical performance criteria. This rating focuses on issues material to a specific sector, geography, and size, all taken into account in the rating, and are measurable.

Details on our core capabilities and all relevant business details can be found in our Capabilities Statement.
Conflict Mineral Policy
In August of 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted a new rule, as required by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, to require companies to publicly disclose their use of conflict minerals that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country (together with the DRC, “Covered Countries”). The new rule took effect on November 13, 2012. The four minerals consist of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold.
TSE Industries, Inc. is not required by law to report or publicly disclose any use of conflict minerals in their purchased raw materials. However, we frequently receive inquiries from customers who are publicly traded and are required to disclose the presence of conflict minerals in their products. Additionally, TSE is supportive of this initiative to champion human rights and is behind the effort of this law.
TSE Industries, Inc. does not directly source any of the above-mentioned raw materials and in most cases is several layers removed in the supply chain. Additionally, it is our policy not to knowingly purchase any raw materials that contain Conflict Minerals from the above-stated region.
We ask of our Suppliers for adherence to the same standard. The responses we have accumulated to date indicate that suppliers to TSE Industries, Inc. are not knowingly purchasing or using any materials that are not Conflict Free. Suppliers to TSE Industries are expected to implement due diligence policies to source only Conflict-Free minerals and report to TSE Industries, Inc. any deviation to the contrary.
