Initiatives with Our Business Partners and Investors

The Nippon Kayaku Group engages in proactively communication with our valued Business Partners and Investors.

Initiatives for CSR Procurement

The Nippon Kayaku Group formulated its CSR Procurement Policy in 2015, and it is published on our website. We have established Basic Procurement Principles and Basic Procurement Policies governing purchasing activities that are appropriate for CSR management. We are now working with every one of our business partners on CSR procurement.

Basic Procurement Principles

In order to realize the KAYAKU spirit, Nippon Kayaku Group will pursue mutual and sustainable growth with suppliers based on the understanding they are important business partners who help us produce products of the best quality.
Based on our basic procurement policy, we Nippon Kayaku and our affiliates conduct our transactions with fair, just and sincere attitude following with the laws and the social norms all the time.

Basic Procurement Policies

CSR Procurement

In order to realize KAYAKU spirit, procurement departments will pursue long-term mutual and sustainable growth with suppliers through active and thorough communication.

We will strive to conduct procurement transactions with our suppliers with an emphasis on important factors including quality, price, stability of supply, observance of relevant laws and regulations, respect for human rights, labor, health and safety, and environmental conservation.

In fiscal 2016, we sent out letters to all of our supplies in Japan and overseas requesting cooperation with CSR procurement and containing information on our Basic Procurement Principles and Basic Procurement Policies along with our CSR report. In turn, we received valuable feedback and comments from our suppliers.

Going forward, we plan to further our efforts among overseas group companies.
