Statement on Conflict Minerals

Statement: Conflict Minerals

As a member of the United Nations Global Compact, Sonepar is deeply committed to responsible sourcing: it condemns violence and human rights violations in the mining of conflict minerals.


Sonepar does not purchase raw materials as it does not manufacture any products. Yet, as the world leader in the B-to-B distribution of electrical products and related solutions and services, Sonepar is an influential player throughout its value chain.

As such, the Group expects its suppliers to:

  • comply with the requirements of its Supplier Code of Conduct.
  • source materials from conflict-free sources.
  • comply with applicable laws and regulations.
  • conduct relevant due diligence.

“Together, let’s contribute to sustainable development and responsible sourcing!”
