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.
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.
The following efforts are being made to promote green procurement:
We clarify our basic policies and rules regarding product manufacturing, and share our environmental policy with each subcontractor.
