Green Procurement

We recognize that "global environmental preservation" is one of the most important issues in our management activities because our socio-economic activities have a great impact on the irreplaceable global environment.

In addition, with the EU's WEEE Directive (*1) and RoHS Directive (*2) and other environmental regulations on products being strengthened and made into laws, demands for corporate social responsibility in terms of environmental aspects such as global environmental measures and legal compliance are increasing more and more.
Against this background, in order to reduce environmental impact through the provision of products and services, we recognize that it is extremely important to appropriately manage environment-related materials at the purchase stage of raw materials and materials necessary for production, and to switch to alternatives with less environmental impact, and are working to promote green procurement. We are currently promoting green procurement in our procurement of raw materials and materials.
Currently, in procuring raw materials and materials, we give priority to items that have less impact on the environment, and we are implementing green procurement activities aimed at eliminating or reducing the use of hazardous chemical substances.
We may ask our suppliers to investigate the chemical substances contained in our products and to submit a non-inclusion guarantee, and we ask for your understanding and cooperation in order to comply with environment-related laws and regulations.
