Supply Chain Management

CSR Procurement

Our Management Principle is to "Contributing to International Society and Continuously Increasing Our Contribution," and we promote CSR by contributing to the resolution of social issues through the implementation of the Management Principle. In February 2022, we established the "Mabuchi Motor CSR Procurement Guidelines" in order to promote CSR not only in our Group but also in the entire supply chain. We will realize a sustainable society through our fair, impartial, and sincere business activities while making our business partners and suppliers understood and cooperative to the “Mabuchi Motor CSR Procurement Guidelines.”

Responsible mineral procurement

We do not procure parts or materials containing minerals related to the risks specified in the "Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict and High-Risk Areas, Annex II" of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), including serious human rights abuses, environmental destruction, corruption, and conflict in conflict and high-risk areas ("OECD Guidance Annex II"). In addition, we do not procure parts or materials containing minerals such as tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold, cobalt, mica, etc., that pose a risk as stipulated in the Guidance Annex II. We cooperate with supply chain investigations, such as identifying the country of origin of minerals and smelters using internationally recognized tools such as the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT). In the unlikely event that minerals are found to be complicit in conflict or involved in gross human rights abuses, we take corrective action.

Promotion Green Procurement

By setting our own special evaluation criteria in addition to laws, regulations, and customer requests, we at Mabuchi strictly control environmentally prohibited substances designated in those standards so that they will not be included in materials and parts of products that we procure from our suppliers. We also prioritize the use of materials and members with a lower environmental impact. We are also prioritizing purchases from suppliers certified with ISO14001, the environmental management standard.

Compliance with Corporate Citizenship

We are taking measures with an eye on the future, such as adding regulated substances and changing prohibited ranks according to European RoHS Directive, European ELV Directive, European REACH Regulation Restricted Substances / SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern), Japanese Chemical Substances Law * 1 Class 1 Specified Chemical Substances, GADSL (Automotive Industry Voluntary Standards), other laws and regulations, requirements from customers. From the enforcement of the European RoHS Directive in 2006 to the present, environmental accidents have not occurred even once due to daily communication with business partners and active efforts to audit the use and storage status of environmentally hazardous substances. We will continue to promote green procurement activities together with our customers and business partners.
