Enough Project out to stop companies from using conflict minerals, gives Nintendo a zero ranking

"Nintendo is, I believe, the only company that has basically refused to acknowledge the issue or demonstrate they are making any sort of effort on it. And this is despite a good two years of trying to get in contact with them." - Sasha Lezhnev, senior policy analyst at the Enough Project
"(Nintendo) outsources the manufacture and assembly of all Nintendo products to our production partners and therefore is not directly involved in the sourcing of raw materials that are ultimately used in our products. We nonetheless take our social responsibilities as a global company very seriously and expect our production partners to do the same." - Nintendo statement


Kind of a shady answer from Nintendo. It's almost like they're saying that they don't get the conflict minerals themselves, so they're not to blame. I guess it all depends on how you look at it. Thanks to LegendofZelda1996 for the heads up.
