In our purchasing transactions, we select our partners based on the principle of economic reasonableness, after comprehensively examining such factors as product quality, price, delivery, reliability of the management, safety, services, technological capability, and attention to the environment and society.
In selecting our partners, we adopt an open-door policy and provide a fair and equitable opportunity for participation. We respond in a faithful manner, irrespective of nationality, past records of transactions, or affiliation to corporate groups.
Promotion of CSR procurement
We are managing all operations based on the principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR). We are also promoting CSR procurement because we want to meet the needs of society and protect the environment in our business activities throughout the entire supply chain, covering the stages from purchasing of raw materials to production and sales. Specifically, we will share “Showa Denko Group’s CSR procurement guidelines” through dialogue with our partners to build up trust. We will also aim to increase the corporate value of both parties through mutual observance of the guidelines. (CSR procurement includes purchase of eco-friendly goods.)
