Procurement Policy

ULVAC has established, observes, and promotes the Basic Procurement Policy. In fiscal 2018, ULVAC reviewed and revised the Basic Procurement Policy and established the Purchasing Code of Conduct to maintain "sound, good relationships with business partners and affiliates," and strove to renew the thorough understanding of employees engaged in purchasing.

Regarding "promoting CSR procurement," which is an item added to the revised Basic Procurement Policy, in July 2019, we conducted a questionnaire survey on CSR targeting our major suppliers in terms of the amount of transactions, with a view to ensuring that the operation of the supply chain contributes to the fulfillment of social responsibility.

Moreover, ULVAC conducts self assessment and for that purpose refers to the RBA Code of Conduct, a set of social, environmental and ethical industry standards issued by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA).

Requests to our business partners

The ULVAC Group seeks understanding of our Group's basic stance on procurement activities for the fulfillment of our responsibilities from not only by our own Group alone, but also by our entire supply chain. In 2013, as a part of this effort, we posted a message entitled "Requests to our business partners" on our website, which lists specific requests we make to our business partners in areas including the environment, human rights, labor affairs, and compliance.
