HOME Supply Chain Procurement Guidelines

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.
Based on the purpose of this procurement policy, we have formulated “Requests to Suppliers,” which includes compliance with laws and such social norms as respect for human rights and exclusion of anti-social forces, prohibition of corruption and bribery, promotion of fair and equitable transactions, and environmental consideration.
With these two guidelines as the two driving wheels of procurement activities, we are working on building and strengthening relationships based on equitable, fair and transparent transactions with suppliers.
