Approach in Procurement

To provide environment-conscious products, RISO KAGAKU CORPORATION continues the effort to procure less environmental loading materials and components.

Green Procurement

RISO has been pursuing green procurement systems to provide environment-friendly products.

To lessen the environmental burden, environmental considerations must also be applied to the components and materials of the products.

To cope with such requirements, RISO has specified its principles and standards in the "Riso Kagaku Group Green Procurement Standard." In accordance with this standard, RISO requests that suppliers not only apply environmental considerations to the components and materials they deliver, but also establish an environmental management system. They are requested to acquire certification of their EMS, such as ISO 14001 or Eco-Stage, so that the proper control is maintained and enhanced.

Riso Kagaku Group Green Procurement Standard (main points)

  1. Positive attitude for improvement of environmental protection.
  2. Observation of applicable environmental regulations and laws.
  3. Elimination of materials prohibited by the company standard from the production process and from the material procurement operations.

Conforming to Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS)

RISO established its "Riso Kagaku Group Green Procurement Standard", which specifies fifteen prohibited substances* and nine environment consideration substances.
*Including six substances restricted by EU RoHS Directive.
