Supply Chain Management

The international spotlight is on supply chain issues that stem from the advancement of globalization, such as human rights, labor practices, fair trade, and building good partnerships. The Nihon Nohyaku Group conducts proper business activities based on its Basic Principles, Action Charter, and CSR Basic Policy. We have also established a Basic Policy for Prohibition on Bribery and Basic Human Rights Policy. In addition, we have established a Basic Procurement Policy which sets out our policy for procurement activities. Recognizing that cooperation with our business partners is essential to fulfill our social responsibility across the supply chain, we ask that they agree to and practice the Group’s Basic Procurement Policy.

Initiatives on Respecting Human Rights throughout the Supply Chain

CSR-related Procurement Questionnaire Survey

In February 2022, Nihon Nohyaku started distributing CSR procurement questionnaires to business partners in Japan, with an 81% response rate.

In FY2023, we will utilize Global Compact Network Japan’s CSR procurement self-assessment tool (SAQ) to gather information and engage in dialogue with business partners to promote cooperation, and work to ensure sustainable procurement activities based on the Basic Procurement Policy of the Nihon Nohyaku Group.

Activities toward Sustainable Procurement

Nichino Group Green Procurement Standards

We have established the “Nichino Group Green Procurement Standards” to strive to achieve sustainable procurement.

The green procurement rate in FY2022 improved from the previous year and was 99.4%.
We will continue to improve our green procurement rate.
