Build Responsible Supply Chains
The company has formulated the Administrative Measures for Bidding, Negotiated Tendering and Contract Review and Evaluation and the Supplier Management Procedures for carefully selecting qualified suppliers of production materials and equipment. We comprehensively evaluate suppliers on the criteria of manufacturing, quality control, innovation ability, social responsibility, etc. in order to build a transparent supply chain.
Build Sustainable Supply Chains

The company incorporates the concept of sustainable development into the procurement process by actively purchasing environmentally friendly products and services and prioritizing procurement from responsible suppliers. The company has formulated the Code of Conduct for Suppliers to guide and regulate supplier behavior in terms of law-abiding operations, compliant employment, resource consumption, emission control, health and safety, and business ethics. This code also encourages suppliers to assume more environmental and social responsibilities. The company requires all suppliers to sign the commitment to the code of conduct for suppliers and encourages upper-level suppliers to recognize and adopt Ganfeng Lithium's code of conduct for suppliers.  
The company needs to purchase a small amount of cobalt metal for the production of ternary precursors. For this, we follow the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, Social Responsibility Guidelines for China's Overseas Mining Investment, China's Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains and other documents. We also follow the three goals of the Responsible Cobalt Initiative (RCI). We have formulated the code of conduct for suppliers, due diligence control procedures for responsible mineral supply chains and responsible mineral checklist for suppliers among other documents to conduct sustainable management of the supply chains of relevant mineral raw materials. This code also supports to identify, prevent and reduce risks that may cause conflicts, serious violations of human rights and serious negligence, improve supply chain governance capabilities and build responsible supply chains. At the same time, we apply the above-mentioned responsible supply chain management measures to the lithium supply chain.
