Supply Chain Management
The SCREEN Group has established the CSR Charter and Code of Conduct to define our principles for business conduct and standards that all Group employees should comply with. They stipulate that the Group will maintain fair and appropriate business relationships and promote social responsibility in the supply chain.
As a manufacturer, we consider stable production indispensable to the provision of solutions to social issues and the continued satisfaction of society’s expectations; therefore, cooperation with suppliers is crucial to us.
Furthermore, amid growing calls for sustainability in recent years, companies are required to respond not only individually but as a unified supply chain.
The SCREEN Group will continue learning with suppliers as it strives to fulfill our responsibilities as a corporation.
Efforts in Procurement
The SCREEN Group conducts fair and equitable procurement activities in accordance with our procurement policy. The Group is working with suppliers to reduce environmental impacts in line with the Group’s Green Procurement Standards and to promote responsible sourcing of minerals.
To ensure stable procurement of components, the Group continues to enhance preparedness for supply chain business continuity by diversifying procurement sources and upgrading IT systems.
Efforts in the Supply Chain
With the SCREEN Supplier Code of Conduct in place, the SCREEN Group has been working with suppliers, as members of the same supply chain, to address compliance with applicable laws and regulations, respect for human rights, environmental conservation, and safety of products and services. The Group regularly conducts CSR surveys of certain suppliers, including those among the top 200 in transaction value with the Group, to confirm compliance with the Code.
Our sustainability efforts are underway throughout the supply chain in cooperation with local governments, financial institutions, and other organizations.
