Procurement

Fujikura Group Procurement Activity

The Group's business is supported by business partners who supply raw materials, parts and equipment. Through fair and fair and sincere procurement activities, the Group has formulated the "Fujikura Group Procurement Basic Policy" in order to establish a solid relationship of trust with its business partners. In addition, we have established the Fujikura Group Procurement Purchasing Division Code of Conduct to strictly control our own actions. In addition, each group company participates and regularly conducts subcontract law sessions, and we are continuing our compliance efforts.

Fujikura Group's CSR-Oriented Procurement Promotion System

In the rapid globalization of business operations, companies are increasingly being required to fulfill their social responsibility in their procurement activities. In response, Fujikura Ltd. and Fujikura Group companies regularly hold a liaison meeting to foster group-wide CSR-oriented procurement activities. We also hold the Fujikura Group's partners' meetings to foster direct dialogue with suppliers and ask for their cooperation to promote CSR-oriented procurement across the supply chain.

Fujikura Group Basic Procurement Policy

The Fujikura Group runs its business with the support of its suppliers of materials, parts, and equipment. To build strong relationships of trust with these suppliers through fair, square, and sincere procurement, we formulated the Fujikura Group Basic Procurement Policy.

Fujikura Group Basic Procurement Policy

According to the following principle,the Fujikura Group will continue its business even in the event of an emergency, carry out social responsibility as a company, and provide stable products and services by practicing business continuity management.

CSR-oriented procurement

In corporate activities that are becoming increasingly global, responsibility to society is being questioned, not only within the company, but the overall entire chain as well. At the Fujikura Group, “CSR Procurement Guidelines for Fujikura Group” has been prepared so that we can expect even greater understanding and practice for CSR procurement by our suppliers.

Questionnaire surveys for supply chain management

Group measures against conflict minerals

The Fujikura Group CSR Committee has been examining measures to be taken by the Group regarding the issue of conflict minerals (gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten), which are minerals procured through inhumane acts in the Democratic Republic of Congo and surrounding countries and regions. In July 2010, following the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in the United States, which includes Section 1502 on conflict minerals, the CSR Committee decided to conduct a supply chain survey on the use of conflict minerals. The decision was made for the Fujikura Group to fulfill its social responsibility as a corporate group that maintains relations with the supply chains of companies registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), although none of the Fujikura Group companies themselves are registered with the Commission. Moreover, in August 2011, the CSR Committee established and announced the Fujikura Group Conflict Minerals Policy of not using conflict minerals procured through inhumane acts by armed forces (violation of human rights, forced labor and child labor) in the world’s largest armed conflicts occurring in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the neighboring countries and regions.

Fujikura Group Conflict Minerals Policy

The Fujikura Group is committed to prohibiting the use of materials in its production processes, which are tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries. All group companies are pledged to discontinue purchase of products that contain conflict minerals.

Group measures against conflict minerals

The Fujikura Group established an official working team on the issue of conflict minerals in time with the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in the United States in 2010. Through this working team, we established a Group system to deal with the issue, centralized reporting, and also set rules on the Group's responses to customers regarding this issue.

The following shows the major activities in fiscal 2015 that the Fujikura Group conducted regarding the issue of conflict minerals.
