Green Procurement

Our Stance

Engagement Approach

In accordance with the OMRON Principles, we at the OMRON Group strive to help create a sustainable society throughout the world by taking dual approaches. One is to supply products and services that contribute positively to the global environment, and the other is to maximize effective use of all management resources. In material procurement, we are committed to promoting green procurement, while reducing disposal of plastic molding materials.

In our green procurement efforts, we are working to proactively adopt materials that do not contain hazardous chemical substances and contribute to reducing environmental impact.

Specifically, we specified ecology (reduction of environmental impact) and compliance (observance of laws, regulations, and social norms) as key programs that should be promoted across our supply chain. As such, we certify green suppliers from two perspectives: establishment of an EMS, environmental management system; establishment of a CMS, management system for chemical substances contained in products.

Initiatives

At present, we award or renew certification to suppliers who meet our green supplier certification criteria revised in 2014. During fiscal 2021, we certified additional 100 companies, reaching a cumulative 3,126. In fiscal 2022, we plan to conduct evaluations of those yet to be certified.
