Green Procurement

Our Stance

Engagement Approach

In accordance with the OMRON Principles, the OMRON Group strives 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. Moreover, the Group promotes "Green Procurement" of materials, proactively adopting materials that do not contain hazardous chemical substances and contributes to reducing environmental impact.

In green procurement, the OMRON Group specified ecology (reduction of environmental impact) and compliance (observance of laws, regulations, and social norms) as key programs that should be promoted across its supply chain. As such, the Group certifies green suppliers from dual perspectives: establishment of an EMS, environmental management system; establishment of a CMS, management system for chemical substances contained in products.

Initiatives

At present, the OMRON Group awards or renews certification to suppliers who meet the criteria for green supplier certification revised in 2014. During fiscal 2019, the Group certified additional 320 companies, reaching a cumulative total of 2,934. In fiscal 2020, the Group plans to complete evaluations of 594 suppliers whose certifications are yet to be renewed.
