Green Procurement

Against the backdrop of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement adopted in 2015, which called for immediate action from the private sector to mitigate global environmental problems, such as climate change and ocean plastic pollution, the JVCKENWOOD Group is aiming to contribute to an environmentally friendly and sustainable society. As part of the efforts to reduce the environmental impacts of our products during their lifecycle, we developed a Green Procurement Guideline in 2008 to provide guidance on managing and sharing information on chemical substances throughout the supply chain. We also ask our suppliers to cooperate in the management of chemical substances contained in products and conduct self-assessment on green procurement to preferentially procure environmentally and human friendly products and components. Thus, we are promoting green procurement in an integrated supply chain where our Group and suppliers work together.


Green Procurement Initiatives and Relevant Documents

Based on the Green Procurement Guideline, we explain the JVCKENWOOD Group’s policies and requirements on management and information sharing on chemical substances contained in products in its supply chain. Moreover, we ask our suppliers to complete a Green Procurement Assessment Form to check their compliance with the requirements. Based on the answers submitted by the suppliers, we assist them with the management of chemical substances.
