Mission Hankook Tire makes constant efforts for economic, social and environmental sustainability of the natural rubber value chain. 1. Background About 85 percent of rubber trees are grown by smallholders. As industrial rubber demand increases due to world population growth and improvements in the quality of life, it is expected that economic, social and environmental issues will arise. Hankook Tire is a tire manufacturer that does not own any natural rubber farms or processing facilities. As such, we aim to propose and execute joint activities with other members of the natural rubber value chain and join global efforts such as GPSNR to establish a sustainable natural rubber value chain. 2. Natural Rubber Value Chain 1) Producers: Farmers, organizations and entities who are producing natural rubber, excluding Smallholder Producers. 2) Smallholder producers: Natural rubber farmers, with all following characteristics. A. The primary source of income for the smallholder is the farm (not only Natural Rubber); B. The Natural Rubber production unit size is less than 50ha (although the farm may be larger); and C. Profits from the farm accrue primarily to the owner of the farm and their family. 3) Dealers: Entities that purchase and collect natural rubber from growers and sell it to processors. 4) Processors: Entities that process primary sources of natural rubber raw materials into natural rubber products. 5) Traders: Entities that buy and sell natural rubber involving physically handling or storing physical material. 6) Manufacturers: Companies who buy and process natural rubber in order to produce finished products that contain natural rubber. 3. Sustainable Natural Rubber Policy (referred to as Policy hereafter) 1) Support for raising growers' living standards through improving productivity and quality of natural rubber (1) We, Hankook Tire, will increase its material efficiency trying to identify the most suitable cultivation practices (such as effective improvement of plant breeding and development of agricultural techniques, etc.) and encourage growers to receive training (such as using productive fertilizers, or appropriate tapping techniques, etc.). 2) Demand for compliance with laws and regulations, and code of ethics (1) Suppliers will comply with all laws and regulations regarding human rights, labor, land use and the environment of the country in which they operate their business.

We demand the recognition and protection of the customary, traditional, and communal land tenure rights of indigenous people and local communities C. For activities that can influence indigenous peoples and local communities (IP/LC), FPIC (Free, Prior, and Informed Consent) is obtained in accordance with the methodology prescribed in the UN-REDD (2012) Guidelines on FPIC. If we cause or have caused harm to the lands, territories, rights, or resources of IP/LC without securing FPIC, we take measures to remedy such issue through a mutually agreeable process.

Background The regulation on conflict minerals regulation was initiated to prevent any funds generated from the sale of minerals extracted in conflict zones from flowing into armed groups in the applicable country, and it requires a company to report any use of minerals mined in a conflict zone (tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold). Definition of a conflict mineral 1. A natural resource that is mined through the serious violation and exploitation of human rights, that the profits thereof are used for rebel activities 2. Conflict zones: Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Angola, Zambia, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda , and Uganda 3. Conflict minerals: Tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold mined from conflict zones Conflict Minerals Policy of Hankook Tire & Technology 1. Hankook Tire & Technology's own regulations : Guidelines for the Selection and Management of Raw and Subsidiary Material Suppliers, Chapter III, Article 8 (Conflict Minerals) stipulates as follows. • All suppliers who supply goods to the company must not use minerals mined in conflict zones and must submit a certificate of origin as a proof thereof. • If necessary, the company may conduct due diligence on its suppliers. 2. Proof and risk assessment process for conflict minerals Hankook Tire & Technology's response to conflict minerals 1. Since Hankook Tire & Technology is not listed on the US stock exchange, it is not subject to direct regulation, but as it supplies tires as the components of motor vehicles, there is an increasing demand from automakers to verify our non-use of conflict minerals. Although the tire's bead wire contains tin which is one of the minerals subject to regulation, Hankook Tire & Technology is supplied with bead wires from companies that use tin from smelters designated as 'Conflict Free' by a third-party independent auditor. 2. To comply with the regulations on conflict minerals, Hankook Tire & Technology has established a purchasing policy to prohibit any use of conflict minerals, and stipulated that companies supplying raw materials subject to regulation may be inspected for the relevant issue during due diligence. We have posted such information on the supply chain to request a ban on the use of any conflict minerals, and companies that supply relevant minerals are required to submit a CMRT (conflict minerals reporting template) and proof of origin once every year. Conflict Minerals Smelter List Tax policy Hankook Tire & Technology practices the return of corporate profits to society through an honest tax payment.
