Human Rights in the Supply Chain

Vision for 2030

A company that undertakes sustainable procurement across the supply chain

Approach and Policy

The SMM Group aims to build a sustainable supply chain in cooperation with its stakeholders. In our supply chains, we monitor risk related to human rights and labor, compliance, quality assurance, and environment and local communities based on international standards and in accordance with the SMM Group Sustainable Procurement Policy. Should any issues occur, they are corrected. In regard to the sourcing of minerals in particular, in order to avoid procuring minerals that may have negative impacts such as child labor and other human rights abuses or environmental pollution, we carry out activities with respect to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) guidance and in accordance with the SMM Group Responsible Mineral Sourcing Policy.
