To provide products with low environmental impact, it is essential to choose the parts, materials, and subsidiary materials that comprise the product for their low environmental effects before and during the course of manufacture. An aggressive stance toward environmental conservation on the part of suppliers is also an important criterion for procurement. We therefore ask the following two things of our suppliers.
- Parts, materials and subsidiary materials must not contain designated chemicals.
- The supplier must have established an environmental management system (either ISO14001 or its own) and set up an environmental preservation structure.
