The JVCKENWOOD Group established the JVCKENWOOD CSR Procurement Guidelines in compliance with the code of conduct set out by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), and we began applying these Guidelines in 2017 to meet the sustainability-related expectations and requirements by a variety of stakeholders (customers, business partners, shareholders/investors, employees, governmental bodies/local communities, etc.).
The CSR Procurement Guidelines comprise seven categories: (1) human rights and labor, (2) occupational safety and health, (3) environment, (4) fair trade and ethics, (5) product quality and safety, (6) information security and (7) social contributions. The JVCKENWOOD Group’s supply chain is expected to comply with these seven categories, which serve as the policies for pursuing sustainable procurement across the entire Group. We are also asking our suppliers to understand and cooperate with the CSR Procurement Guidelines, and we plan to familiarize them with the Guidelines in supplier meetings.
While gaining supplier understanding on the importance of sustainability procurement, our Group will be urging all suppliers to properly administer the Guidelines, including conducting studies of industry trends.
