Our Green Procurement Practices

What is Green Procurement

We actively engage in environmental conservation efforts. Within these efforts, green procurement has become an essential part of creating environmentally-friendly products that both comply with the law and have limited ecological impact. In collaboration with our business partners, we have recognized the importance of procuring parts and materials with minimal environmental impact and an ecologically-friendly life cycle. To ensure the products we sell contain zero hazardous chemical substances, Hayakawa Group promotes a policy of “never to buy, use, or distribute” any parts that include toxic chemicals.

Items Subject to Our Green Procurement Policy

All products shipped by the Hayakawa Group as well as any materials, parts, and packaging procured for use in our manufacturing operations.
