Approaches to Supply Chain CSR

Approaches to Supply Chain CSR

Procurement Policies

In selecting suppliers, NDK makes efforts to evaluate their involvement in environmental activities, quality, price and capability of quality management, production and technique, considering their involvement in CSR (respect of human rights / involvement in health and safety, environment, ethics / exclusion of antisocial organizations, international terror organizations and armed groups). And NDK purchases materials from the suppliers that promote involvement in environmental activities positively, so that we could fulfill the NDK's philosophy, which is "being aware of its mission and responsibility as the top manufacturer in the world in the crystal products industry" and "contributing to the surrounding communities and recompensing its investors".
