It is no exaggeration to say that in order for humans to continue existing on this planet, a harmonious relationship with the environment is essential. This is a point that must be recognized not only by the manufacturing industry, but by all people living on Earth.
From the expansion of our business operations as a whole, down to each and every individual employee, we at the THK Group are extremely conscious of our relationship with the environment, and are determined to effectively reduce our environmental impact.
To this end, through the materials and components that we ourselves use in the manufacture of our products, as well as the procurement of secondary materials, tools, and more used within the manufacturing industry, we at the THK Group feel it is essential to consider our impact on the environment.
This is THK’s philosophy of green procurement, which fundamentally involves eliminating our use of harmful chemical substances and reducing our environmental impact, and requires active collaboration from trade partners on initiatives relating to environmental protection.
Global regulations regarding the environment become stricter and more detailed every day. Following the establishment of the EU’s RoHS directive in July 2006 and the REACH regulation in June 2007, increasing importance has been placed on the social obligations of manufacturing firms. In order to stay current with our environmental activities, we at the THK Group established the "THK Green Procurement Policy," which we ask all trade partners to abide by.
We have always valued cooperation regarding QCD (Quality, Cost, and Delivery) improvements from our trade partners. Now, we wish to add E (Environment) to that acronym. In order to strengthen our existing partnerships, we appreciate full cooperation in our green procurement endeavors.
A list of products compliant with the EU’s RoHS directive (regarding the 6 substances in Directive 2011/65/EU) can be found on our homepage.
