Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Conflict Minerals Disclosure

The AZEK Company Inc. (the “Company”) is an industry-leading manufacturer of beautiful, low-maintenance and environmentally sustainable residential and commercial building products. The Company’s products include decking, railing, trim, porch, moulding, siding, pergolas, bathroom and locker systems, as well as extruded plastic sheet products and other non-fabricated products for special applications in industrial markets.

This Form SD disclosure is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Rule 13p-1”). Pursuant to Rule 13p-1, the Company undertook to determine whether the products it manufactured or contracted to manufacture during the year ended December 31, 2021 contained conflict minerals necessary to the functionality or production of such products. “Conflict minerals” are defined as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold, wolframite and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (“3TG”).

The Company evaluated its products to determine which of its products may contain 3TG. Based on this review, the Company determined tin is necessary to the functionality or production of certain of its products. The Company’s product categories that may contain tin are: (i) polyvinyl chloride (“PVC”) products, including PVC decking, decking accessories, railing, trim, siding and certain commercial and industrial PVC products and (ii) certain lighting products. The Company conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry to determine whether any of the 3TG contained in its products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia (together, the “Covered Countries”) or from recycled or scrap sources. The Company’s primary means of determining the country of origin of the 3TG contained in its products was conducting a supply-chain inquiry using the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative with the Company’s direct suppliers representing 100% of the Company’s spend on these products in 2021, eliciting, as applicable, information regarding (i) the presence of 3TG contained in materials supplied to the Company, (ii) the refiner or smelter of the 3TG, (iii) the country of origin of the 3TG, (iv) whether the 3TG came from scrap or recycled sources, and (v) other relevant information regarding the supplier’s (or its suppliers’) practices concerning 3TG. The Company received survey responses from 100% of the suppliers solicited. The Company reviewed and evaluated each response received from this inquiry. In addition, the Company maintains vertically integrated recycling operations that recycle scrap materials prior to their inclusion in the Company’s products.

Based on the reasonable country of origin inquiry described above, the Company has in good faith concluded that it has no reason to believe that the Conflict Minerals used in products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the Company and necessary to their functionality or production may have originated in the Covered Countries.

In accordance with the requirements under Rule 13p-1, the above disclosure is also available on the Company’s website at investors.azekco.com.
