Green Procurement Guidelines

Komori manufactures products by procuring various items (raw materials, parts, goods, packing materials, etc.) from our suppliers. In order to ensure that these products comply with Japanese and international chemical substance laws and regulations, and to build a legitimate supply chain, we have developed and deployed the "Komori Green Procurement Guidelines." This document identifies and explains the following chemical substances:

  • Ranking standard to manage chemical substances as according to their risk
  • Objects of chemical substances to regulate and manage
  • Objects of procurement parts to regulate and manage
  • Implementation summary of chemical substance management

Compliance with the PRTR system

We manage, notify, and disclose information on emissions and transportation of substances that are considered to be potentially harmful to human health and ecosystems.

Compliance with the Fluorocarbons Emission Control Act

We conduct annual inspections and basic inspections of products and maintain a history of said inspections to ensure thorough compliance.
