Anecdotes

In 2014, Bran Krzanich made a commitment not to use raw materials supplied from the conflict zones, especially from Africa, in manufacturing of Intel products (Intel’s “Conflict minerals sourcing policy”). These minerals, such as tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, if they directly or indirectly benefit armed groups in Democratic Republic of Congo, would not be used in Intel supply chain. Implementation of the project will be guided by the local NGO “The enough project”.
