The Nisshinbo Group's Contributions to the SDGs

The Nisshinbo Group will contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through CSR-oriented procurement activities. Key performance indicators (KPIs) are managed and planned measures taken to achieve the Group's Mid-Term CSR Targets of "Implementing Improvements in CSR Procurement in Collaboration with Suppliers."

Core SDGs Goals and Targets and the activities of the Nisshinbo Group

The Nisshinbo Group promotes CSR-based purchasing activities based on the idea that SDG 16.5 is a core target. We will set out the "Basic CSR Procurement Policy" for all Group companies and conduct unified activities as a Group.

  • 16. Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

    Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

  • Targets: 16.5

    Substantially reduce corruption and bribery in all their forms.

CSR Procurement

The Company has summarized its basic perspectives on CSR activities throughout the supply chain in the CSR Procurement Basic Policy of the Nisshinbo Group.

Based on the CSR Procurement Basic Policy of the Nisshinbo Group, each Group company has formulated its own CSR procurement guidelines, which are more concrete and adjusted to specific business descriptions. The Group issues questionnaires to its suppliers and uses the results as feedback with which to work on improvement activities.
In January 2019, we held our first CSR Procurement Officers Meeting for Group companies to discuss the status of activities and progress of KPIs. This conference will be repeated on an annual basis.

In the future, we will continue to promote CSR procurement initiatives along with our suppliers.
