Procurement Policy

As it aims to become the “honor of Asia,” KOKUYO Group, with the comprehension that mutual understanding and mutual development with suppliers will be increasingly important, issued its basic procurement policy and its guidelines in March 2013.

Building Stronger Relationships of Trust with Our Suppliers

As corporate activities are becoming more globalized, KOKUYO Group is well aware that managing its own company and its subsidiary companies is insufficient to fulfill the scope of social responsibility. In 2013, the Group therefore invited 32 principal subcontractors to give an account of the procurement policy and implemented a self-examination questionnaire for feedback to the subcontractors. In 2014, we sent the basic procurement policy and guidelines to nearly 400 suppliers. We strive to further build relationships of trust through these activities.
