    Together with Suppliers

    Basic stance

    Using fair and equitable procedures, the Toyota Boshoku group purchases raw materials, parts and equipment from a large number of suppliers throughout the world based on our basic purchasing policy. Together, we will grow by putting into practice the spirit of a win-win relationship while fulfilling our social responsibilities in the supply chain with the aim of enhancing corporate value.

    Open, Fair and Transparent Trade and Implementation of CSR Activities in the Supply Chain

    In addition to conducting purchasing activities based on a basic purchasing policy, we are working to strengthen CSR throughout the supply chain.

    Basic purchasing policy

    1. Open and Fair Transactions
    2. Mutual Development through Mutual Trust
    3. Promotion of “Green Purchasing”
    4. Promotion of Local Purchasing as a Good Corporate Citizen
    5. Law-abidingness and maintaining Confidentiality

    Promotion of CSR-related procurement

    Toyota Boshoku requests the following for its basic supplier agreements: (1) Respect of human rights and building awareness of social responsibility in the supply chain; (2) Prohibiting bribery; (3) Ensuring fair transactions; and (4) Removing antisocial forces. Furthermore, we are working to strengthen CSR throughout the supply chain. This includes complying with laws and regulations pertaining to antitrust laws, subcontracting laws, labour laws and environmental laws in Japan as well as similar laws and regulations in respective countries and regions.
    In fiscal 2019, we expanded this initiative globally so we can enable CSR-related procurement throughout the supply chain. In addition, we continue to respond to regulatory issues concerning conflict minerals* and are conducting surveys by going back along secondary and tertiary suppliers. At Toyota Boshoku, we conducted a self-check on purchasing ethics and an internal audit for all departments related to orders and confirmed that there were no cases of serious breaches. There were also no reports of dishonesty in a survey regarding supplier satisfaction.
    In September 2019, we plan to conduct a satisfaction survey for business partners through a third-party institute in order to maintain fairness.

    *1 Conflict minerals are minerals extracted in a conflict zone that are sold to perpetuate the fighting.

    Creation of a Global Purchasing System

    As business becomes more global in nature, the Toyota Boshoku group is working as a whole to promote local purchasing and realise optimal global purchasing together with suppliers, giving due consideration to all aspects such as quality, safety and cost.

    Global Annual Supplier Meeting

    We held the Toyota Boshoku Global Annual Supplier Meeting, which was attended by 174 supplier companies from Japan, The Americas, Asia & Oceania, China and Europe & Africa. We aimed to strengthen cooperation globally and fostered a sense of unity.

    Awards were presented to 16 supplier companies during the meeting.

    Deployment of global Supplier Parts Tracking Team (SPTT) activities

    The Toyota Boshoku group is promoting global SPTT activities to assure the quality of its products by helping suppliers in other regions enhance their production processes, from beginning with the production preparation stage to getting their businesses on track after the launch of new products. Such actions help create face-to-face ties between suppliers and various divisions, including purchasing, design and quality control, as well as enable problem solving and mutual benefits from different perspectives, notably in such areas as quality, amount, cost, distribution and timely delivery.
    We will continue improving SPTT activities and rolling them out globally in order to provide customers with even better quality products.
