“We establish voluntary environmental regulations in order to achieve superior levels of environmental conservation”,
“We actively share information about environmental conservation both internally and externally” and
We promote effective measures for environmental management systematically and on a continuous basis”.
We also have established a code for suppliers, under the basic procurement policy.
In accordance with these policies, our products are made with parts and materials provided by many suppliers. In view of that, our efforts alone do not suffice towards reducing environmental load, such as the impact of environmentally hazardous substances on people and the environment, and the impact of greenhouse gases (GHG) across all stages of production. It is absolutely essential that our suppliers from whom we purchase items, parts and materials also cooperate in our environmental efforts.
Based on this belief and foundation, this Guideline summaries our green procurement standards for our suppliers and our request for the suppliers’ cooperation to further enhance our environmental performance.
This is the eighth edition of our “Green Procurement Guidelines”.
We ask for your continued cooperation in connection with this important subject.
