Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Logitech has adopted a Conflict Minerals Policy which can be found at

In accordance with the execution of this policy, Logitech has concluded that during 2013:


  a) Logitech manufactured and contracted to manufacture products as to which “conflict minerals” (as defined in Section 1, Item 1.01 (d)(3) of Form SD) are necessary to the functionality or production of such products; and


  b) Based on its “reasonable country of origin inquiry,” Logitech was unable to obtain sufficient information from the company’s supply chain to make a final determination as to the source of these conflict minerals. Logitech could not establish that the conflict minerals originated from sources in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country (the “Covered Countries”) as defined by the Rule. Therefore, Logitech has defined its products to be “DRC conflict undeterminable.”

Logitech’s reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI) employed a combination of measures outlined below to assess whether the conflict minerals necessary in Logitech products originated from the Covered Countries. Logitech’s primary means of determining country of origin of conflict minerals involved performing a supply-chain survey of direct suppliers through use of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition® (EICC®) and The Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.

We surveyed our direct suppliers, using the template developed by the EICC and GeSI, known as the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (“CFSI”) Reporting Template (“The Template”). The Template was developed to facilitate disclosure and communication of information regarding smelters that sell material to a company’s suppliers. It includes questions regarding a company’s conflict-free policy, engagement with its direct suppliers, and a listing of the smelters the company and its suppliers use. In addition, the template contains questions about the origin of conflict minerals included in their products, as well as supplier due diligence. Written instructions and recorded training illustrating the use of the tool is available on EICC’s website ( The Template is being used by many companies in their due diligence processes related to conflict minerals.

Through the reasonable country of origin inquiry described above, Logitech surveyed all of our direct suppliers (453 suppliers in total). Approximately 84.99% of those suppliers, whom we had reasons to believe may contribute necessary conflict minerals to Logitech Products, provided a response to the supply-chain survey. We reviewed the responses against the criteria designed to evaluate the adequacy of responses. These criteria include, but are not limited to, untimely or incomplete responses as well as inconsistencies within the data reported in the template. We have worked, and continue to work, directly with these suppliers to obtain revised responses.

Through our participation in CFSI, the OECD implementation programs, and request of our suppliers to complete The Template, we have concluded that obtaining information about tin, tungsten, tantalum or gold (“3TG”) smelters and refiners in our supply chain represents the most effective method to determine the mines or locations of origin of the conflict minerals in our supply chain for the reporting period.

After conducting due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the Conflict Minerals in our products, we found our products to be DRC conflict undeterminable, as indicated below.
