We are delighted to announce that TPV Technology has joined ITSCI as an Associate Member. TPV Technology was founded in Taiwan in 1967. With 13 manufacturing bases worldwide and an annual shipment of approximately 50 million units, TPV has grown from a small display factory to the world’s largest manufacturer of LCD monitors with a steady market share of over 28%. TPV adheres to a two-pronged OBM/ODM business model. The company distributes display products under its own brands AOC, AGON, Envision and under a long-term exclusive license agreement with Philips for global monitors, TVs, audio-visual products, and mobile phones, as well as design and manufacture products for some of the best-known TV and PC brands in the world. By supporting responsible mineral supply chains, TPV aims to offer better displays with higher sustainability performance for people’s aspirations for better life, and fulfil the company’s vision to become a greener partner trusted by employees, customers, and the earth.

The ITSCI Associate Membership is open to any company in the downstream supply chain (post smelter level), including metal traders and exchanges, component manufacturers, product manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and retailers. By contributing to the financing of ITSCI, downstream companies remain abreast of ITSCI activities whilst supporting important initiatives related to risk management in Conflict Affected and High Risk Areas (CAHRAs). Downstream industry Associate Members of ITSCI receive regular alerts on risks, reports on success of mitigation and other information allowing them to perform enhanced due diligence on supply chains and accurately report on their due diligence efforts to the SEC or other regulations. They have access to up-to-date information on the positive impacts of the programme, which can be relevant for other international requirements or standards (e.g. Conflict Mineral Reporting, EPEAT, etc.). Associate Members support the sustainable financing of the programme by contributing a membership fee, thus, sharing the cost of due diligence across the supply chain.

ITSCI continues to encourage direct engagement and financial support from downstream companies who recognise the value of upstream due diligence and wish to make use of ITSCI information in understanding supply chain risks and their mitigation.
