Berkshire Hathaway Energy and its affiliates fully support the initiatives of Section 1502 of the
Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which aims to prevent the use of certain Conflict Minerals
that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in The Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining
countries; (Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda
and Zambia). These conflict minerals include wolframite, casserite, columbite-tantalite (coltan), gold and their
derivative metals; tantalum, tin and tungsten. This list could expand to include other minerals or their derivatives,
as determined by the U.S. Secretary of State.
To the full extent required by Section 1502 of the act, as well as the related rules and regulations issued by the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission, Berkshire Hathaway Energy is committed to avoiding the purchase and/or use of conflict minerals which
directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries.
Berkshire Hathaway Energy is committed to taking proactive measures to ensure that products and raw materials received from our
suppliers are responsibly sourced. Berkshire Hathaway Energy has committed to incorporate into relevant supplier contracts and agreements
the requirement for responsible sourcing of minerals and may suspend or discontinue engagement with suppliers where
Berkshire Hathaway Energy identifies that these requirements are not being met.
