Procurement Policy Orientation
In addition to its commitment to delivering quality products, Epson believes that maintaining human rights, labor standards and environmental conservation throughout its entire supply chain is an important part of its corporate responsibility. Epson therefore considers all suppliers as important business partners.
Epson holds annual orientation meetings to brief suppliers about its procurement policies. At the orientations held in April 2016, we provided a general overview of our business situation and strategies, explained our initiatives and procurement policies, and asked for suppliers' understanding and cooperation in improving quality, reducing costs, keeping strictly to appointed delivery dates, participating in CSR initiatives, and promoting business continuity management.
Our idea of a partnership with suppliers throughout our supply chain is a win-win relationship in which Epson and its partners share a common set of values and cooperate with each another to meet and exceed customer expectations.
