Section 13(p) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule
thereunder (collectively, the conflict
mineral rules) require Imperial to make certain disclosures concerning supply sources for conflict minerals principally consisting of gold, tin, tungsten, or tantalum that may be necessary to the manufacture or functionality of
our products. Terms and phrases used but not defined in this disclosure have the meanings given under the conflict mineral rules.
or contracts to manufacture certain catalysts for which tin or tungsten are necessary to the products functionality. Imperial also makes use of certain tin and tungsten catalysts in our own refineries and chemical plants. Depending on the type
of catalysis process used, trace amounts of such minerals may exist in some of our finished products.
Although these tin and tungsten catalysts are used
in compound form we have conducted in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding the conflict minerals described above for 2020. Such inquiry is reasonably designed to determine whether any of these minerals originated in the
Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country, or are from recycled or scrap sources. The inquiry included obtaining written representations from each of our suppliers for these minerals to the effect that (i) the
supplier has conducted its own reasonable country of origin inquiry within the meaning of the conflict mineral rules with respect to minerals sold to Imperial; and (ii) based on such inquiry, the supplier has determined such minerals do not
originate in the DRC or an adjoining country, or are from recycled or scrap sources, or the supplier has no reason to believe such minerals may have originated in the DRC or an adjoining country. We have also amended each of our contracts with
suppliers of conflict minerals to require the supplier to maintain procedures reasonably designed to ensure any conflict minerals sold to Imperial are not sourced from the DRC or an adjoining country, and to require prompt notice to Imperial of any
breach of this covenant.
Based on these inquiries, we have no reason to believe any of the conflict minerals necessary for products we manufactured or
contracted to manufacture in 2020 may have originated in the DRC or an adjoining country.
