Companies have recently assumed greater responsibility for the sustainable development of society. As the Nikon Group deploys its business, the individuals and corporations in our so-called supply chain, including our Procurement Partners, are strongly encouraged to fulfill their social responsibility. Accordingly, we kindly request all of our Procurement Partners to understand our "Nikon CSR Procurement Standards".
Nikon CSR Procurement Standards
We kindly request all of our Procurement Partners to comply with the following to fulfill their social responsibility.
Overview of Nikon CSR Procurement Standards
Our procurement partners are committed to uphold the human rights of workers, and to treat them with dignity and respect as understood by the international community. This applies to all workers including temporary, migrant, student, contract, direct employees, and any other type of worker. The recognized standards, as set out in the annex, were used as references in preparing the Standards and may be a useful source of additional information.
- B.HEALTH and Safety
Our Procurement Partners are committed to recognize that in addition to minimizing the incidence of work-related injury and illness, a safe and healthy work environment enhances the quality of products and services, consistency of production and worker retention and morale. Our Procurement Partners also recognize that ongoing worker input and education is essential to identifying and solving health and safety issues in the workplace.
Recognized management systems such as OHSAS 18001 and ILO Guidelines on Occupational Safety and Health were used as references in preparing the Standards and may be useful sources in understanding the Standards.
Our Procurement Partners recognize that environmental responsibility is integral to producing world class products. In manufacturing operations, adverse effects on the community, environment and natural resources are to be minimized while safeguarding the health and safety of the public.
Recognized management systems such as ISO 14001 and the Eco Management and Audit System (EMAS) were used as references in preparing the Standards and may be useful sources in understanding the Standards.
To meet social responsibilities and to achieve success in the business, our Procurement Partners and their agents are to uphold the highest standards of ethics through sound and fair business management and appropriate disclosure of information including business conditions.
- E.MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Our procurement partners shall adopt or establish a management system whose scope is related to the content of the Standards. The management system shall be designed to ensure: (a) compliance with applicable laws, regulations and customer requirements related to our Procurement Partners' operations and products; (b) conformance with the Standards; and (c) identification and mitigation of operational risks related to the Standards. It should also facilitate continual improvement.
