Facilitating CSR Initiatives Throughout the Supply Chain
Promote CSR activities throughout the entire supply chain by working closely with suppliers, processing vendors, customers and distribution companies

- Respond to all CSR procurement surveys from corporate customers
- Build group-wide CSR procurement framework
The Toray Group recognizes that socially responsible procurement is an issue that must be addressed throughout the supply chain. To this end, the Group's CSR Procurement Guidelines mandate the delivery to customers of materials and products that meet social and environmental requirements via environmentally friendly modes of transport. The Group seeks the understanding of suppliers and distribution partners in this effort.
To ensure socially responsible procurement across the Group, Toray has established a working group under the Risk Management Committee. In efforts spearheaded by the working group, Toray strives to ascertain the status of CSR practices at suppliers, supports group companies in this area, and responds to customer inquiries about Toray's CSR practices.
