          Providing Responsible Products

          Our Efforts to Provide Products to Our Customers

          Although KEYENCE manufactures products using a fabless system in which we outsource much of our production to subcontract plants, we procure materials required for product planning, development, design and production.

          Production is handled at subcontract plants around Japan, and our production technology, production planning and quality control departments cooperate with these plants and are building a system to manufacture quality products by being deeply involved with production such as by providing assembly drawings and supplying materials.

          Produced goods are supplied from logistics centers in Japan directly to domestic customers as well as to overseas customers via distribution locations.

          Procurement Guidelines

          In order to ensure a workplace that takes human rights into consideration, we have established procurement guidelines for our supply chain, and request that our suppliers follow these.

          In addition, as part of our basic business agreement, we request that these suppliers make efforts to reduce their environmental impact and prevent environmental pollution to protect the environment.

          Green Procurement

          The following efforts are being made to promote green procurement:

          • We have established rules for environmental management and materials management and ask that our suppliers comply with these rules.
          • We provide guidance on environmental management systems and confirm compliance through on-site audit and interviews with questionnaires.
          • We request the submission of non-inclusion certificates for each component and the provision of information on substances contained in components using standard industry formats.
          • We hold workshops on the environment as part of environmental education for our employees.
          • We have built an environmental management system based on ISO 14001, and we are certified by a third-party organization.

          Supply Chain Management

          We clarify our basic policies and rules regarding product manufacturing, and share our environmental policy with each subcontractor.

          • Fair trade in compliance with the law
          • Prohibiting forced labor, slave labor, child labor, discriminatory practices, unknowingly hurting another individual or using one's status or position to harass another individual
          • Maintaining confidentiality
          • Protecting the work environment
          • Safety management
          • Complying with local rules and regulations
          • Complying with and maintaining standards and making efforts to achieve environmental policies
