Providing Safe and Reliable Products and Services to Customers

We are engaged in initiatives to mitigate environmental impact throughout our supply chain, based on the life-cycle assessment (LCA) approach. Especially, amid growing demand for stricter management of chemical substances, we have collaborated with our customers and suppliers to specify the management standards for 16 hazardous chemical substance groups, including cadmium, and have established arrangements to control environmentally hazardous substances contained in procured raw materials and products, including packaging materials.

We have also established internal regulations, which include relevant laws & regulations and the fair purchasing policy specified in the Charter of Corporate Behavior advocated by the Nippon Keidanren. Our basic purchasing policy states that we shall always pay proper attention to resource and environment conservation. Furthermore, we make sure that raw materials procured from our suppliers do not contain minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas.
