The business environment is diversifying, and in order to achieve sustainable development, it is expected that every company will actively strive to fulfill its social responsibilities not only for itself but for the entire supply chain. The Basic Procurement Policy is based on the Management Vision and Action Mindset and we will work with business partners to co-create a sustainable society throughout the entire supply chain through procurement activities grounded in unwavering ethics. In order to fulfill this responsibility, we formulated our own Sustainable Procurement Guidelines based on ISO 26000 (Guidance on Social Responsibility), ISO 20400 (Guide to Sustainable Procurement), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact. Our guidelines cover seven fields: 1) organizational governance, 2) human rights, 3) labor practices, 4) environment, 5) fair business practices, 6) consumer issues, and 7) social contribution. We exchange information with business partners regarding the status of our sustainability-related efforts as we strive to mutually attain a higher level.
