Conflict Minerals Report
of NVIDIA Corporation
for the Calendar Year Ended December 31, 2017

OUR COMPANY

Starting with a focus on PC graphics, NVIDIA invented the graphics processing unit, or GPU, to solve some of the most complex problems in computer science. We have extended our focus in recent years to the revolutionary field of artificial intelligence, or AI. Fueled by the sustained demand for better 3D graphics and the scale of the gaming market, NVIDIA has evolved the GPU into a computer brain at the intersection of virtual reality, high performance computing, and AI.

The GPU was initially used to simulate human imagination, enabling the virtual worlds of video games and films. Today, it also simulates human intelligence, enabling a deeper understanding of the physical world. Its parallel processing capabilities, supported by up to thousands of computing cores, are essential to running deep learning algorithms. This form of AI, in which software writes itself by learning from data, can serve as the brain of computers, robots and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. GPU-powered deep learning is being rapidly adopted by thousands of enterprises to deliver services and features that would have been impossible with traditional coding.

NVIDIA has a platform strategy, bringing together hardware, system software, programmable algorithms, libraries, systems, and services to create unique value for the markets we serve. While the requirements of these end markets are diverse, we address them with a unified underlying architecture leveraging our GPUs and Compute Unified Device Architecture as the fundamental building blocks. The programmable nature of our architecture allows us to support several multi-billion dollar end markets with the same underlying technology by using a variety of software stacks developed either internally or by third party developers and partners. The large and growing number of developers for each of our platforms strengthens our ecosystem and increases the value of our platform to our customers. 

Our two reportable segments - GPU and Tegra Processor - are based on a single underlying architecture. From our proprietary processors, we have created platforms that address four large markets where our expertise is critical: Gaming, Professional Visualization, Datacenter, and Automotive.

We do not directly manufacture the semiconductors used for our products, nor do we manufacture the company’s branded devices. Instead, we utilize a fabless manufacturing strategy, whereby we employ world-class suppliers for all phases of the manufacturing process, including wafer fabrication, assembly, testing, and packaging. This strategy uses the expertise of industry-leading suppliers that are certified by the International Organization for Standardization in such areas as fabrication, assembly, quality control and assurance, reliability, and testing. Additionally, we can avoid many of the significant costs and risks associated with owning and operating manufacturing operations. While we may directly procure certain raw materials used in the production of our products, such as substrates and a variety of components, our suppliers are responsible for procurement of most of the raw materials used in the production of our products. We also contract with manufacturers to build, test, and distribute our company-branded devices. As a result, we can focus our resources on product design, additional quality assurance, marketing, and customer support.

Because conflict minerals were necessary to the functionality of the products we contracted to manufacture between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017, or the Reporting Period, we conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry, or RCOI, regarding those conflict minerals. “Conflict minerals” are defined in Item 1.01(d)(3) of the Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD, or the Form SD, as columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin, and tungsten, or collectively, 3TG.

REASONABLE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN INQUIRY (RCOI)

NVIDIA’s supply chain is complex and there are multiple tiers between NVIDIA and the actual mining of the 3TG. Because we utilize a fabless manufacturing strategy, we must rely on our suppliers and component manufacturers, including sub-tier suppliers, to provide us with information on the origin of the 3TG contained in our products and product components.

To conduct our RCOI, we identified our suppliers and component manufacturers of products manufactured during the Reporting Period, and requested that they each provide NVIDIA with a list of the smelters and refiners associated with the 3TG in their products and components via the conflict minerals reporting template, or the CMRT, of the Responsible Minerals Initiative (formerly known as the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative), or RMI. Our goal was to determine whether any 3TG in our products or components originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country, which we refer to collectively as the Covered Countries. One hundred percent of our suppliers and component manufacturers responded with the requested information, and we compared their responses with the RCOI data provided by the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (formerly known as the Conflict-Free Smelter Program), or RMAP, of the RMI.

Our RCOI revealed that, of the 267 worldwide processing facilities in our supply chain which sourced 3TG for our products contracted to be manufactured during the Reporting Period, 39 smelters and refiners were identified by the RMI as sourcing from the Covered Countries and were not solely from recycled or scrap sources. Therefore, we believe that a portion of the 3TG contained in our products or components originated in the Covered Countries, and we are filing this Conflict Minerals Report pursuant to Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, to describe our due diligence efforts on the source and chain of custody of such 3TG.

DUE DILIGENCE PROGRAM DESIGN

Our conflict minerals due diligence program is designed to conform in all material respects with the framework recommended by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, or the OECD Guidance, as it relates to our supply chain position as a “downstream” purchaser. Summarized below are the components of our program as they relate to the five-step framework set forth in the OECD Guidance:

OECD Guidance Step 1: Establish strong company management systems

Adopted and publicly communicated a company-wide Corporate Responsibility Directive, in which we declare that we abide by the Code of Conduct of Responsible Business Alliance (formerly known as the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition, or EICC), or RBA, including the standard regarding responsible sourcing of conflict minerals, which can be found on our website at http://images.nvidia.com/content/includes/gcr/pdf/nvidia-corporate-responsibility-directive.pdf
As a member of the RBA, required that our suppliers and contract manufacturers acknowledge and implement the RBA’s Code of Conduct, which includes an obligation to conduct due diligence regarding conflict minerals
Adopted and publicly communicated a conflict minerals policy endorsed by our Executive Vice President, Operations, which is posted on our website at http://images.nvidia.com/content/includes/gcr/pdf/nvidia-conflict-minerals-policy.pdf
Assembled an internal conflict minerals team, with representation by NVIDIA’s Operations (covering Silicon Products and System-Level Products groups), Legal, Sales, Procurement, Internal Audit and Corporate Responsibility departments





Established a system of control and transparency over our conflict minerals supply chain by engaging first-tier and second-tier suppliers and requesting relevant information through the use of a third-party supplier management vendor which utilized due diligence tools created by the RMI, including the CMRT

Maintained a company grievance mechanism available internally to allow reporting about any matter of concern, including those related to conflict minerals
Internal Audit team conducted a review of our conflict minerals due diligence process in calendar year 2016

OECD Guidance Step 2: Identify and assess risk in the supply chain

Identified relevant suppliers that supplied products containing 3TG by reference to bills of materials
Requested such suppliers to provide information regarding smelters or refiners in our supply chain by using the CMRT
Reviewed supplier responses for completeness and accuracy
Compared information in supplier responses with the list of 3TG processing facilities that received a “compliant” designation, produced by the RMAP
Contacted non-responsive suppliers, requesting their responses
Provided suppliers with feedback on responses containing errors, inconsistencies, or incomplete information

OECD Guidance Step 3: Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks

Reported progress on at least a bi-monthly basis to our Executive Vice President, Operations
Identified main risks in our supply chain
Contacted certain smelter and refinery facilities that have not received a “compliant” designation from an independent third-party audit program to encourage their participation
Implemented a risk mitigation response plan to monitor and track unresponsive suppliers and/or incomplete or inaccurate supply chain information
Reviewed and compared the list of smelters in our supplier base against Office of Foreign Assets Control-sanctioned countries and Specially Designated Nationals
Requested that certain suppliers remove specific smelters or refiners from their supply chain that we deemed to be high-risk
Informed non-responsive suppliers that we will assess, and potentially withhold, future business with them if they do not acquire materials from conflict-free sources within the DRC and do not provide their supply chain conflict minerals information to us using the CMRT
Removed companies from our supplier base due, in part, to their failure to comply with our conflict minerals policy
Conducted meetings with certain customers and responded to their specific concerns and requests

OECD Guidance Step 4: Carry out independent third-party audit of supply chain due diligence at identified points in the supply chain

Relied on the RMAP, the London Bullion Market Association, and the Responsible Jewellery Council to coordinate third-party audits of smelters and refiners to validate the sourcing practices of such facilities in our supply chain
Provided indirect financial support for such third-party audits through our continued membership in the RBA and RMI
Participated in RBA work groups, including smelter engagement and outreach

OECD Guidance Step 5: Report on supply chain due diligence






Adopted and publicly communicated a conflict minerals company policy endorsed by our Executive Vice President, Operations, which is posted on our website at http://images.nvidia.com/content/includes/gcr/pdf/nvidia-conflict-minerals-policy.pdf
Published conflict minerals information in our annual corporate responsibility report, which is posted on our website in the About NVIDIA section of http://www.nvidia.com
Filed our Form SD for the reporting period from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017, including this Conflict Minerals Report, with the Securities Exchange Commission and made it available on the Investor Relations page of our website at http://investor.nvidia.com/sec.cfm

DESCRIPTION OF DUE DILIGENCE MEASURES PERFORMED

Below is a description of the measures we performed for this Reporting Period to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of our necessary conflict minerals.

We requested supply chain information from 100% of our direct suppliers that may use necessary 3TG in our products and components to determine whether any of these minerals originated in the Covered Countries or were from recycled or scrap sources. We used third-party supplier management software to track these communications with direct suppliers, automate the identification of quality issues, aggregate CMRT responses for analysis and reporting, and perform additional follow up with those suppliers whose CMRTs contained incomplete or potentially inaccurate information. After reviewing the names provided by our suppliers and component manufacturers against the RMI lists of verified smelters and refiners, we consulted with our RMI colleagues to distinguish those that were actual smelters and refiners from other participants in the upstream supply chain, such as brokers and traders. We provided our list of smelters and refiners for inclusion in the RMAP, which utilized an independent third party to conduct audits, according to the standards of the OECD Guidance, of willing smelters and refiners to determine the source and origin of their ore, as well as whether they were conflict-free.
 
COUNTRY AND MINE OR LOCATION OF ORIGIN OF NECESSARY CONFLICT MINERALS

Based on the due diligence described above, we determined that the supply chain for our products contracted to be manufactured during the Reporting Period sourced conflict minerals from up to 267 processing facilities worldwide, of which, as of May 22, 2018:

249 have been validated by the RMAP as “compliant,” including all 39 smelters and refiners which were identified by the RMI as sourcing from the Covered Countries;

Seven are “active” and in the process of being audited by an independent third party;

Five have been identified by the RMAP as smelters but have not participated in an independent third-party audit;

Five are not in operation; and

One is under review and unable to participate in the RMAP

A list of smelters and refiners that we believe are contained in our supply chain and are either compliant or active as determined by the RMAP is attached hereto as Exhibit A.

We requested mine or location of origin information, if known, from each of our direct suppliers, most of which do not source directly from processing facilities, for the purposes of determining the source and chain of custody of the necessary 3TG in our supply chain. Based on country of origin information provided by the RMI for RMAP-compliant processing facilities:

The necessary 3TG in our products which may have originated from the Covered Countries came from one or more of the following: Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda; and

The necessary 3TG in our products which may have originated outside the Covered Countries came from one or more of the following: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Benin, Bolivia (Plurinational State of), Brazil, Burkina Faso,





Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Eritrea, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Ghana, Guatemala, Guinea, Guyana, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Laos, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Mongolia, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Russian Federation, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Togo, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, United States of America, Uzbekistan, Viet Nam, and Zimbabwe

However, we are unable to determine, as of the date of the filing of the Form SD to which this Conflict Minerals Report is an exhibit, the origin of all necessary 3TG that were contained in the products we contracted to manufacture during the Reporting Period.

STEPS TAKEN OR TO BE TAKEN TO MITIGATE RISK AND IMPROVE DUE DILIGENCE

NVIDIA has been a member of the RBA, a coalition of leading electronics companies working together to improve social, ethical, and environmental responsibility in the global supply chain, since 2007. We were also an active participant in the EICC-Global e-Sustainability Initiative Extractives Work Group, a multi-sector partnership focused on addressing conflict minerals issues and challenges, which became the RMI. Additionally, to support initiatives targeted at improving the traceability of conflict minerals in the Great Lakes Region of Central Africa, which includes the Democratic Republic of the Congo, we joined the Public-Private Alliance for Responsible Minerals Trade in 2013.

We are also part of the Smelter Engagement Team sub-work group of the RMI, which performs outreach to smelters, encouraging recognized smelters and refiners to participate in the RMAP. Apart from our participation with the Smelter Engagement Team, since 2013 we have also contacted approximately 40 smelters and refiners directly to encourage them to be audited through RMAP.

We have adopted a goal to use only conflict-free 3TG in our products. Accordingly, we implemented a formal conflict minerals policy by which we communicated our expectation to our suppliers that they acquire materials from conflict-free sources within the DRC and to provide their supply chain conflict minerals information to us using the CMRT. We also informed them that we would assess, and potentially withhold, future business with suppliers who do not comply with our policy. Since 2016, we have removed companies from our supplier base due, in part, to their lack of compliance with our policy.

In 2017, we joined the RMI Sensing and Prioritization Work Group to focus on emerging risks and additional minerals beyond armed conflict and 3TG and outside of the Democratic Republic of the Congo geography.

In 2018, we intend to undertake the following activities to mitigate the risk that our necessary 3TG benefit armed groups and improve to our due diligence measures:

Request our suppliers to engage with their supply chain, and leverage our membership and participation in RBA work groups, to encourage smelters or refiners that are neither compliant nor active, according to the RMAP, to be audited by an independent third party

Review our approved vendor list and streamline our supplier base appropriately

Continue to communicate our intention to withhold future business with suppliers who do not comply with our Conflict Minerals Policy, and to remove companies from our supplier base accordingly

Seek opportunities to join new industry and stakeholder initiatives to support the responsible sourcing of minerals

INHERENT LIMITATIONS ON DUE DILIGENCE MEASURES
 
Because of our fabless manufacturing strategy and our contract manufacturing process for our branded devices, our due diligence measures can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance regarding the source and chain of custody of the necessary conflict minerals in the products we contract to have manufactured. Given our place in the supply chain, we have no direct relationships with smelters, refiners, and therefore possess no independent means of determining the source and origin of conflict mineral ores processed by smelters or refiners. Our due diligence processes are based on the necessity of seeking data from our suppliers and component manufacturers and those suppliers seeking similar information within their supply chains to identify the original sources of the necessary conflict minerals. We also rely, to a large extent, on information collected and provided by independent third-party audit programs. Such sources of information may yield inaccurate or incomplete information and may be subject to fraud.
