Green procurement guidelines ver3.3
1. Introduction Human health and environment have been exposed to chemicals at an unexpected risk level through the course of modern economic development. Since the beginning of the 21st century, Noritsu Koki Co., Ltd. (NKC) started gearing toward health and environment-friendly monozukuri by designing and developing products having little environmental load. To this end, NKC will promote green procurement practices based on “Green Procurement Guidelines” (called the Guidelines hereafter) and compliance of environmental chemical substance control laws and other requirements. 2. Purpose With green procurement, we procure products that are safe, recyclable and energy efficient from suppliers that actively engage in environmental conservation and environmental chemical substance controls. The aim of the Guidelines is to contribute to the making of a clean society by avoiding use of environmentally harmful chemical substances not only at NKC but over the entire supply chain in the distribution of products. 3. Promoting green procurement We would like suppliers to join us in the promotion of green procurement and fulfill the following conditions. 3-1 Terms and conditions for suppliers
