Promote Green Procurement/Green Delivery
We promote green procurement, green delivery.
To deliver high-quality products that are environmentally-friendly to our customers, TPR collaborates with all our suppliers to source materials and parts (= "green procurement") which place a lower burden on the environment.
To do so, we ask all our suppliers to investigate whether environmentally hazardous substances are contained or not, and ask that they engage proactively in environmental conservation through the consideration items below.
Chemical substances control
- Substances prohibited by code should not be used in products or manufacturing factories.
- Substances which have environmental impact concerns should be controlled, and their reduction and elimination should be promoted.
- Promote resource reduction by making smaller and lighter, and reducing scrap
- Selection and use of recycled materials and recyclable materials.
- Selection and use of materials which can be easily disassembled down to a re-usable unit.
- Selection and use of materials that consume less energy during production and usage.
- Control of chemical substances
In line with customers' requests, we can report with IMDS*¹ or JAPIA sheet*² regarding chemical substances in products.
In addition to domestic code such as the Chemical Inspection Law and Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Law, and international regulations such as the European ELV Directive*³, GADSL*⁴ and REACH regulations*⁵, we can provide investigation reports into whether chemical substances are contained or not inside a product in accordance with the customer's environmental hazardous substances control standard.
