Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report for the Year Ended December 31, 2019
Brunswick Corporation (Brunswick) determined that tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold (Conflict Minerals) were necessary for the production or functionality of products we manufactured or contracted for manufacture during the year ended December 31, 2019, and we are therefore required to report under Section 1502 (b) of the Dodd-Frank Act and SEC Rule 13p-1, Item 1.01(b). Accordingly, we conducted a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI) regarding the applicable Conflict Minerals to assess whether they originated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country that shares an internationally recognized border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the Conflict Region). We have reason to believe that certain of our necessary Conflict Minerals originated, or may have originated, in the Conflict Region and are not from recycled or scrap sources. These Conflict Minerals were the subject of our due diligence efforts as described in the attached Conflict Minerals Report.
A copy of this Form SD and attached Conflict Minerals Report in accordance with Rule 12b-12 (17 CFR 240.12b-12) may be found on Brunswick's website at https://www.brunswick.com/corporate-responsibility/brunswick-policies-practices-standards.
