Committment to Sustainability

A cornerstone of our committment is to provide products and services that support sustainable infrastructure development while striving to reduce the amount of raw materials, energy and waste used during the manufacturing process.

AZZ supports efforts to end human suffering and environmental harm associated with certain minerals that may have originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the “DRC”) and adjoining countries, and is committed to the ethical sourcing of any minerals used in our manufacturing and supply chain. AZZ is dedicated to continue to comply with all legislative and regulatory requirements to help end civil conflict and human rights abuses in the DRC region.
The process of tracing the origin and chain of custody of minerals through a global supply chain is sometimes complicated and challenging because some component suppliers or sub-suppliers may lack the resources to trace minerals all the way back to their source. AZZ endeavors in good faith to continue to have its suppliers exercise reasonable due diligence to evaluate their respective supply chains to reduce the risk that minerals in our supply chain come from mines that finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC region. We evaluate our suppliers annually and report on the same.
