Conflict minerals

The Enough Project report looks at the supply chain for leading technology manufacturers and the sources of various materials, including Ta, Sn and W, from the view of human rights abuses. The aim being to eradicate so called 'conflict materials' from their supply chains. Praise is given in the report to both Intel and HP for their efforts whilst at the bottom of the pile is Nintendo, which "has made no known effort to trace or audit its supply chain."
