Procurement Policy

Toshiba Group’s compliance with the Law. And our concerns for human rights and the environment.

Green Procurement

It is essential to consider the environment throughout the entire supply chain to realize Toshiba Group’s long term environmental vision `Environmental Future Vision 2050.` Working hand in hand with our suppliers globally, Toshiba Group gives high priority to promoting green procurement which aims to procure products, parts and components, materials and services, etc. with minimal environmental impacts from suppliers that proactively promote environmental management. Toshiba Group Green Procurement Guidelines present Toshiba Group's basic concept of green procurement and the specific content of our requests to suppliers.

Reporting System

Platform for a wide range of Stakeholders: Engagement and Remedy Platform by JaCER

Toshiba has been responding to human rights-related reports and consultations from its employees and suppliers. In order to receive complaints and grievance reports on business and human rights issues from a wider range of stakeholders*, Toshiba joined the Engagement and Remedy Platform operated by Japan Center for Engagement and Remedy on Business and Human Rights(JaCER)in October 2022. JaCER is an organization that aims to provide the non-judicial platform for redress of grievances and to act in a professional capacity to support and promote redress of grievances by member companies based on the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Toshiba Group will respond to complaints and grievance reports in an appropriate manner by utilizing the platform to ensure fairness and transparency in the process.

*Group employees are supposed to use the Toshiba Hotline or Audit Committee Hotline, not this platform.
