Engagement with Suppliers
Targeted Social Issues
- Conducting responsible manufacturing (in procurement and production activities)
The Value Fuji Xerox Provides to Address These Issues
- Promoting procurement and production activities throughout the supply chain and developing locally rooted sustainable business operations
High-Priority Management Themes at Fuji Xerox
- Strengthening supply chain management (implementing CSR/expanding ethical procurement at Fuji Xerox manufacturing sites)
By procuring with considerations to financial and other economic aspects as well as CSR aspect such as environment, society, and corporate governance, we at Fuji Xerox contribute globally to the solution of social issues including those concerning the environment, human rights, labor, and corporate ethics.
At Fuji Xerox, we view our suppliers as partners who we share our philosophy and policies with. By sharing CSR-related values and discussing the environment, human rights, labor and corporate ethics with the aim of minimizing related risks, we promote ethical procurement globally to build mutually beneficial relations with these partners and enhance both their competitiveness and ours.
For the establishment of a robust supply chain, it is critical to reduce suspensions of production lines and ensure stable operation and supply. In fiscal 2017, we will expand our on-site support to suppliers to help them foster ethical procurement by taking the same approach as Fuji Xerox does. Moreover, we will continue to evaluate suppliers’ risks not only in terms of CSR but also BCP for the enhancement of related measures.
