Brother visits 41 suppliers and selects the best CSR company and four outstanding CSR companies from submitted entries
Aiming to further promote the CSR activities of its suppliers, the Brother Group has been conducting questionnaire surveys about their CSR efforts and honoring excellent ones since 2015 at its three manufacturing factories of the Machinery business, including Kariya Factory, Brother Machinery Xian Co., Ltd., and Brother Machinery Vietnam Co., Ltd.
In FY2018, we visited a total of 41 suppliers in Japan, China, and Vietnam and carried out on-site inspections based on the responses in the FY2017 questionnaire survey.
At each site, we checked production process improvements, approaches for environmental protection, employee education, and so forth, and asked the suppliers who had not complied with their safety manuals or rules to improve their operations.
In addition, we invited our suppliers to submit their CSR activities and chose the best CSR company and four outstanding CSR companies from 62 entries.
Those award-winning suppliers are actively engaged in various activities, such as CSR education for their subcontractors, formulation of a BCP (business continuity plan), employment of persons with disabilities, and provision of educational opportunities for university students.
The Brother Group continually strives to develop relations of mutual trust with its business partners and grow together with them to quickly deliver superior value to customers.
