Green Procurement

Aware of the major impact of our company on the environmental of the economic activities, we recognize that “conservation of the global environment” is one of the most important aspects of our management activities and implement activities to conserve the environment, with mindset of “Environmentally-friendly corporate activities focused on conservation and reduction of the Impact on the natural Environment”.

Moreover, the reinforcement of environmental regulations and legislation governing products including the EU WEEE and RoHS Directives (*1) has given rise to a growing demand for corporate social responsibility on environmental issues such as measures to protect the global environment and compliance with laws and regulations.

From this kind of circumstance, in order to reduce the impact on the environment through the supply of products and services, as recognizing the extreme importance of promoting measures such as appropriate management at the procurement phase of environmental-related substances used in raw and other materials required in production as well as shifting to substitutes with less impact on the environment, we promote green procurement.

Currently, we revised “Standard for Green Procurement of Components and Materials” on procurement of raw and other materials to comply with changes in laws and regulations as well as the demands of society and our customers, and implement green procurement activities focusing on the chemical substances contained in such materials and resources.

We respectfully ask for your understanding of the “Standard for Green Procurement of Components and Materials” established for the purpose of compliance with environmental laws and regulations, as well as your cooperation of the examination.
