Promotion of CSR procurement

Global, open and fair transactions

In our transactions, we strive to provide all of our suppliers, at home and abroad, with procurement information and the opportunity for open, fair transactions. Actual transactions are determined based on a comprehensive review of quality, technology, cost and delivery times, as well as soundness of management, approach to and structures for ongoing improvement, and other factors.

Mutual growth based on mutual trust

Our relationships with our suppliers based on building and maintaining relationships of trust through close communication, and a basic approach that calls for us to grow together with our business partners and share the fruits of our mutual efforts.

Legal compliance

We comply with all relevant laws and regulations related to our purchasing activities, and ensure careful control over the confidential information of our suppliers.

Green purchasing

Since formulating the Aichi Steel Environmental Charter in 1996, we consider environmental preservation in all phases of our business activities, and work to continuously improve our environmental preservation activities. As part of the effort, in 2003 we established our Green Purchasing Guidelines, working to purchase products with minimal environmental impact and prioritize purchases from suppliers engaged in proactive environmental protection efforts.
