Conflict-free minerals

It has been widely reported that violence and human rights violations in Central Africa (the Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC], Republic of Congo, Central Africa Republic, South Sudan, Zambia, Angola, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda) are driven by mining the minerals tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold (“conflict minerals”). Stitch Fix is committed to developing and maintaining an ethical supply chain, including working with vendors that do not use conflict minerals in any of our products.

Stitch Fix expects all vendors to adopt policies and processes to ensure that any tin, tungsten, tantalum or gold in their products is conflict-free and to require their suppliers to adopt similar policies and processes. While Stitch Fix will conduct ongoing due diligence to understand and manage the risk of vendors’ use of conflict minerals, it is expected that vendors establish their own due diligence program to ensure conflict-free supply chains, and that vendors share the results of those diligence programs directly, including unredacted and complete reports, with Stitch Fix.
