MISUMI Corporation Green Procurement
MISUMI has formulated Green Procurement Guidelines to observe the legal restrictions and other requirements concerning environmental chemicals and to help build up a recycling society, and we are advancing green procurement activities. By preparing Green Procurement Guidelines and continuously striving to improve our environmental preservation and environmental chemicals management activities, we seek to eliminate environmental chemicals from our products. We ask our customers and business partners for their cooperation with these efforts.
Green procurement is the procurement of environmentally friendly Products, etc. designed with attention to safety, recyclables, and energy conservation, from suppliers which are implementing environmental preservation activities, including control of chemical substances.
In addition, the Guidelines aim to eliminate the use of chemical substances in Products, etc. through the ongoing improvement of environmental preservation activities, including control of chemical substances. Therefore, we apply in principle to all Products, etc. that MISUMI procures from suppliers.
The cooperation of our suppliers is crucial in our promotion of green procurement. From the perspective of source control, we ask suppliers to promote the development of an environmental management system at their companies.
MISUMI will revise its Guidelines as necessary in light of changes in laws and regulations. For further details, please visit our English website. (http://www.misumi.co.jp/about/environment/green/pdf/green_v1_en.pdf
