Green ProcurementGreen Procurement
In order to make environmentally conscious products, we ask our suppliers to do two things in line with our Green Procurement Guidelines: give a description of environmental impact substances in specification sheets and respond to environmental management evaluations.
Green Procurement Guidelines (ver. 3)
- Request for Description of Chemical Substance in Specification Sheets and Survey on Chemical Substances
To further promote environmentally conscious manufacturing, we have been asking our suppliers to describe (in the specification sheets for newly adopted parts and materials) any substances that have an environmental impact. We have revised the survey contents in the Report on Chemical Substance Contained in the Product*1(ver. 10.0). From now on, all suppliers are required to submit two pieces of documentation: the revised Report on Chemical Substance Contained in the Product and another document including data on analyzed chemicals. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in our efforts to preserve the global environment.
(*1)Former name:"Report on Environment Impact Substance Contained in the Product"
1) Description of Chemical Substance in Specification Sheets
Please attach the Report on Chemical Substance Contained in the Product--along with the chemical analysis data--to the final page of your specification sheet when sending new parts and materials to SDP. Please fill out the Report on Chemical Substance Contained in the Product.(File 1)
The chemical analysis data--which provides supporting evidence for the Report on Chemical Substance Contained in the Product--must meet the requirements mentioned below*2. An alternative to the chemical analysis data (such as a composition table from a raw material maker) may be acceptable, if it can be used to verify RoHS compliance. (Please refer to Sample File 2 below.)
(*2)Requirement for "Analysis Data":
Regarding each part/material, measured data on RoHS objective substances (Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB, PBDE and Phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP)*3) and organization name that measured it are required. If you judge the exemption of EU RoHS on your parts/materials, please describe the reason of it.
(*3) Requests of Phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP)
Four kinds of phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP) shall be restricted to use by EU RoHS directive after 22 July 2019. These are mainly used as plasticizer of soft resins and have the property of transferring (migration) from other articles by contact. Therefore it is concerned that those are migrate to the articles from packages or sheets using in workplace. For that reason, we would like to ask you to be careful not to migrate or contaminate during cleaning or handling.
2) Survey of Chemical Substances Contained in Parts and Materials
The purpose of this survey is to assess the status of chemical substances contained in the parts and materials that you supply to SDP. Please fill out and submit the Parts Environment Survey Sheet (File 3), the Check Sheet Regarding Parts Environment Survey Sheet, and the EU Ecolabel Adaptation Statement (File 4) in accordance with your specification sheets.
When filling out these files, please refer to the Manual for Survey of Chemical Substances Contained in Parts and Materials, the List of Target Substances and Management Classification, and the reply examples.
3) Subject parts and materials
These are all new parts and materials that are supplied to SDP. Although molded parts, steel plates, etc. are included, packaging materials used for supplying these parts and materials are not included. However, packaging materials for packaging products from SDP for service are included.
(File 1) Report on Chemical Substance Contained in the Product (ver. 10.0) (182KB)
(Former name:"Report on Environment Impact Substance Contained in the Product")
* The Ecolabel Adaptation Statement covers target parts and non-target parts.
Target parts: Resin parts (housing), cables, wires, power-supply units, PCBs, etc.
Non-target parts: Electrical parts (ICs, PCB-mounted parts, connectors, etc.), parts with no resin components
- Green Procurement Survey
This survey is meant to assess the environmental protection measures taken at your company. Following a revision of the Supply-Chain CSR Deployment Guidebook, which was revised to make it conform to the EICC Code of Conduct (see the CSR Procurement page for details), the Green Procurement Survey has been implemented as the CSR/Green Procurement Survey since FY2015. With regard to the contents of green procurement in the survey, please refer to the Green Procurement Guidelines.
