Each business site and plant of Nippon Chemi-Con had settled green purchase standards and carried out green purchase individually. However, in order to share the same green purchase standards company-wide, we established common guidelines in June 2003 for internal operations.
The guidelines target on the following nine goods and five services, which were selected based on the Law on Promoting Green Purchasing and green procurement network standards. One example is, we set copy paper standards for its mixing ratio of waste paper and whiteness degree, and purchase of the acceptable goods will be considered as achievement of green purchase.
|Paper||Copy paper, printing paper, toilet paper, etc.|
|Office furniture||Desks, chairs, shelves|
|Office automation equipment||Copiers, fax machines, PCs, printers, monitors|
|Home appliances||Air conditioners|
|Lightning||Fluorescent lighting equipment, fluorescent tubes|
|Cars||Company-owned cars, leasing cars|
|Uniforms||Uniforms, work clothes|
|Waste disposal||Environmental-friendliness of waste disposers|
