Trinseo operates in compliance with the final rule approved in August 2012 by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding the sourcing of conflict minerals under Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
Trinseo does not use conflict minerals in manufacturing its products. Conflict minerals are not necessary to the "functionality or production" of our products. We are not aware of any conflict minerals sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries in our supply chain. These conclusions are based on a comprehensive internal analysis of our sourcing, product development and manufacturing operations.
