CSR Procurement Guidelines

  Rubycon Group is working to strengthen Supply Chain Management with a focus on business continuity as well as on sustainable value creation.
  We have established "Rubycon Group Procurement Policy" based on our Management Philosophy, and are working to strengthen compliance with laws, regulations, and social norms while demonstrating our basic policy on procurement both internally and externally through our website.

We will continue such activities in the future.

«Control of handling of Banned Substances, Hazardous Substances, and Toxic Substances»

  We have specified our "Banned and Abolished Substance List" for banned and hazardous substances and are continually updating it according to customers' requirements of green procurement including RoHS and REACH regulations.
  We have a check system for RoHS regulated substances in material reception stage through regular XRF analysis for samples and inspection of high-precision analysis data.
  We also have a material tracing system to prevent reception, incorporation and contamination of banned and abolished substances. In the system, a barcode is used to identify all materials under cooperation of suppliers to establish material traceability. We have a database to trace material information within 24 hours to prevent environmental defects from being released.
  Under the Slogan "I shall Protect the Earth", we shall be environmentally conscious and promote our daily efforts to maintain our comfortable environments.
