Green Procurement

Green Procurement Initiatives

Toshiba Group is promoting green procurement worldwide with the cooperation of its business partners. When procuring parts and raw materials, in addition to coming to a shared understanding of biodiversity initiatives with our business partners, we conduct a survey to check how many chemicals with potentially high environmental impacts or scarce resources are contained in these parts and materials and give priority to those with low environmental impact. Information on parts and materials is stored in a database and used for various purposes, including certifying newly procured materials, making judgments as to whether or not to replace existing materials with substitutes, or developing environmentally conscious products. We also perform analyses of chemicals on our own to verify information on parts and materials and take an active part in developing and improving analysis methods to increase the accuracy and efficiency of data collection.
