As business becomes more and more globalized, there is a growing possibility of procurement risks in the supply chain creating management problems. As an enterprise that engages in businesses activities in many regions around the world, Hitachi strives to identify and mitigate these risks in advance as much as possible.
Hitachi emphasizes sustainability in the value chain, and suppliers are selected strictly in accordance with the Hitachi Group Global Procurement Code. Additionally, in order to share our CSR procurement policies, we not only distribute the Hitachi Group CSR Procurement Guidelines to approximately 30,000 suppliers around the world and ensure their awareness but also conduct CSR Monitoring (self-checks) and CSR audits to minimize procurement risks. To address the conflict mineral issue, Hitachi formulated the Hitachi Group Conflict Minerals Procurement Policy to promote responsible procurement in line with international guidelines.
Furthermore, embracing the Hitachi Founding Spirit of “Harmony, Sincerity, and Pioneering Spirit,” we adhere to basics and ethics and put right and wrong before profit and loss, with all employees sharing our policy of making quality and reliability our top priority, thereby strengthening our quality assurance activities.
