CSR Procurement Guidelines

DNP Group Procurement Guidelines for Materials, Equipment, Construction Supplies, and Other Items

Business activities today are serially linked, requiring the involvement of a number of companies to create a single product or service. In order for companies to fulfill their social responsibilities, every company involved in the product or service must recognize its social responsibilities and behave with integrity and in good faith. CSR(corporate social responsibility) efforts are being promoted throughout the DNP Group. With regard to CSR obligations for raw materials, machinery, buildings, and other items used by DNP, the cooperation of the suppliers is indispensable. In order to promote our CSR efforts and to achieve sustainable growth of society, our suppliers, and DNP itself, we would like to ask for your understanding and cooperation regarding the DNP Group CSR Guidelines for Procurement described below.
