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. After informing suppliers of these guidelines, we conduct supplier surveys.

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