Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
This Form SD of Celanese Corporation (the "Company") is filed pursuant to Rule 13p-1 (the "Rule") promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, for the reporting period from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
The Rule provides that a company that manufactures, or contracts to manufacture, products for which the minerals specified in the Rule are necessary to the functionality or production of those products must conduct in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding those specified minerals that is reasonably designed to determine whether any of the specified minerals originated in certain covered countries. The specified minerals are columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, tantalum, tin, and tungsten (collectively, the "Conflict Minerals"). For purposes of the Rule, the "Covered Countries" are the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia and Angola.
Certain of the Company's operations manufacture, or contract to manufacture, products for which Conflict Minerals are necessary to the functionality of those products. Specifically, certain of the Conflict Minerals are component chemicals of catalysts used in the manufacture of certain of the Company's products. The Company has conducted a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding these Conflict Minerals. The good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry was reasonably designed to determine whether any of the Conflict Minerals originated in the Covered Countries and whether any of the Conflict Minerals may be from recycled or scrap sources. Based on this reasonable country of origin inquiry, the Company determined that the Conflict Minerals used in its catalysts did not originate in the Covered Countries. The Company's reasonable country of origin inquiry entailed (i) identifying the Company's suppliers of, and lessors that trade in, the Conflict Minerals used in the Company's catalysts and (ii) obtaining certifications or written confirmations from these suppliers and lessors, each of which indicated that the Conflict Minerals obtained by the Company from the seller or lessor did not originate in any Covered Country.
