Co-creating with Our Business Partners

Epson is committed to practicing sustainable procurement. We develop mutually beneficial trusting relationships with our business partners around the world based on the concepts of fairness, coexistence, transparency, and co-prosperity. In addition to providing quality products and services, we believe that part of our responsibility is to work with business partners to ensure that human rights, labor standards, and environmental preservation are being upheld across the supply chain. Business partners that we can trust are essential if we are to continue to provide customers with products and services that excel in every area, including quality, price, and environmental performance.

These partnerships are the roots that allow Epson to grow in harmony with the local and international communities.

To Our Suppliers

As stated in our management philosophy, Epson believes that corporate social responsibility (CSR) is fundamental to our aim of remaining a progressive company, trusted throughout the world.

In order to provide its products and services, Epson procures various raw materials and services from outside the company. Therefore, it is essential that all our suppliers fully understand our corporate principles and support us in our efforts to meet the standards they set out.

Basic Procurement Policy

  1. We will build good partnerships with suppliers, based on mutual trust and the principles of fairness, coexistence and co-prosperity.
  2. Exercising high ethical standards and a social conscience, we will conduct our procurement activities in strict compliance with both the letter and spirit of laws and regulations, both national and international, in every region where we operate.
  3. We will strive to reduce the environmental impacts of our procurement activities and will always seek stable and reasonable quality, price, and delivery from suppliers.
