OJ Electronics has for years been working with suppliers to keep track of chemicals in products.

Sorting and recycling

We have strict in-house procedures for waste management, meeting or exceeding all requirements from local and national authorities. We currently sort waste into more than twenty different subgroups.

Conflict minerals

When you deal with OJ Electronics, you can be sure that the minerals in your products are sourced with due respect for human rights and the need to avoid contributing to conflicts.

The so-called conflict minerals pose a specific challenge, as mentioned in the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act, section 1502, and in Regulation (EU) 2017/821. We aim to avoid that any of these minerals used in our products are sourced in a way that finances conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries.

As we do not source any of these minerals directly, our efforts focus on ensuring that our suppliers are as committed as we are.
