CSR Procurement

Basic ideas

Basic way of thinking on CSR procurement

Tokai Carbon’s corporate philosophy is to develop "Ties of Reliability" with our stakeholders, such as shareholders, customers, business partners, local communities, and employees, through our corporate activities.
It is necessary to face the global environmental and social challenges as a party to roll out sustainable corporate activities while building up the trust with our stakeholders.
These activities will not solely be completed by the effort of Tokai Carbon Group, but more with the understanding and cooperation of our suppliers, in our upstream supply-chain. To make this procurement policy known to all of our suppliers, we have published its contents below.This is the reason of why we formulated the procurement policy, and with this policy, Tokai Carbon Group will contribute to the realization of sustainable society with our suppliers.

Initiatives for promoting green procurement

【Green procurement, green purchasing】

As a part of our environmental activities, when procuring product raw materials, parts, materials, services, etc., from suppliers, we promote the priority selection of goods and services with a lower environmental burden.

  1. Fuel

    To reduce CO2 emissions, we have switched some of our fuel from heavy oil to gas.

  2. Secondary materials

    To promote the reduction of industrial waste, we are switching to materials with value after initial use and reusable secondary materials.

  3. Packaging and wrapping materials

    To ensure the effective use of limited resources, we are adopting simplified packaging, the use of recycled materials, and other environmentally friendly approaches to packaging and wrapping. We are also employing returnable boxes that can be used repeatedly, and reusing shock absorption materials to help promote resource conservation.

  4. Green purchasing

    We believe that purchasing based on a careful consideration of needs and selecting the most environmentally friendly products whenever possible are incredibly effective for building a sustainable, recycling-oriented society. With this in mind, we have created the Green Purchasing Basic Policy and Green Purchasing Procedures, and apply these uniform standards to aggressively promote green purchasing.

Initiatives for resolving human rights and labor issues in the supply chain

Tokai Carbon has adopted a basic philosophy of “Ties of Reliability”. The idea is to build relationships of mutual trust between our company and our stakeholders, namely, our customers, suppliers, shareholders, employees and society.
Tokai Carbon Group has bases all over the world and we procure raw materials from suppliers worldwide. We therefore believe that working to resolve human rights and labor issues throughout our entire supply chains will earn the trust of our broad base of stakeholders, starting with our customers and shareholders. In other words, it will create “Ties of Reliability”.
