Environmentally-conscious procurement

To promote our efforts to reduce the use of environmentally hazardous substances, we have issued the “Green Procurement Standard,” which clarifies “prohibited substances” and “monitoring-required substances” as defined by law and by our customers. As the regulations on environmentally hazardous substances are expected to be strengthened, we continue to review the Green Procurement Standard from time to time, to promote a shared understanding with our suppliers.
