The Kubota Group believes that a common understanding of CSR and working cooperatively on CSR policy with our clients is essential in responding to rising client concern over the entire business process, from which products and services are derived, and in which the business partners play a significant role. The "Kubota Group CSR Procurement Guideline" is the basis for promotion of such activities.
The KUBOTA Group is committed to the procurement of products with a reduced environmental impact from suppliers that engage in environmental activities, as part of our commitment to providing society with products that are friendly to global and local environments.
To ensure that these activities are carried out, the KUBOTA Group will explain its green procurement policy through the KUBOTA Group Green Procurement Guidelines and conduct an investigation of suppliers' environmental protection activities and negative environmental impact substances contained in procured products as appropriate.
Green procurement cannot be achieved without cooperation of suppliers. The KUBOTA Group appreciates its suppliers' understanding of its policy, and their support and cooperation will be highly appreciated.
