In order to promote sustainable procurement throughout the entire supply chain, in 2019 we began an independent survey of the degree to which our major suppliers are adopting sustainable procurement. Specifically, the Corporate Sustainability Department, the Procurement Department, and some other departments collaborated to send a "Sustainable Procurement Self-Evaluation Sheet" consisting of 35 items in 7 fields, including "organizational governance," "human rights," "labor practice," "environment," "fair business practices," "consumer issues," and "social contribution" to approximately 300 major suppliers and asked them to perform self-evaluations. In addition to providing feedback on the results of these assessments, if there are any concerns, we work with suppliers to improve and solve these issues together through dialogue, thereby reducing risk throughout the entire supply chain. This survey will be repeated once every three years to ensure continuous improvement.
Our sustainable procurement initiatives have only just begun, but society, suppliers, and we are working to achieve
a triple win.
