CSR Fair Operating Practices
Approaches to fair operating practices
The Fujitsu General Group feels it must manage its entire global supply chain, both in Japan and throughout the world, in line with fulfilling its overall social responsibilities. Our components suppliers are required to adhere to the Group's CSR procurement guidelines; we visit their factories to perform a physical compliance audit. By receiving the support from these suppliers, we are able to better assist the reduction of the environmental load, satisfying both the expectations of society at large and realizing Our Mission of — Living together for our future —.
CSR approach to our suppliers
Promotion of CSR procurement
The Fujitsu General Group feels it must manage its entire global supply chain, both in Japan and throughout the world, in line with fulﬁlling its overall social responsibilities. By closely working together with our suppliers and business partners, we can minimize the negative impact on the environment and meet the expectations of society, thus actualizing a tenet of Our Mission — Living together for our future —.
CSR Procurement Guidelines
The CSR Procurement Guidelines were established in 2019. The guidelines require anyone within the Fujitsu General Group responsible for procurement to fully understand the CSR procurement policy and guidelines. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of those engaged in procurement within the group to make these guidelines known to those outside companies which support our supply chain and ensure commitment to adhere to same.
On-site supplier survey
The Fujitsu General Group conducts surveys and checks the status of compliance with the CSR Procurement Guidelines for suppliers.
Before undertaking an actual survey, we request our business partners to complete a questionnaire (self-audit). During the field survey, we measure the degree of compliance with our CSR guidelines against the parameters of human rights, health and safety levels, and the level of measures which have been taken to protect the environment.
In FY2020, due to the pandemic of COVID-19, we were unable to conduct CSR audits and other on-site surveys, but we did conduct self-checks using the self-assessment questionnaire for seven companies in Japan, four in China, and five in Thailand. In the survey conducted in FY2020, no CSR issues were found among our suppliers.
Measures for Conflict Minerals
The Fujitsu General Group, in cooperation with its business partners, promotes responsible procurement to prevent the sourcing of conflict minerals connected with the use of forced labor, human rights violations, and civil unrest/war.
