Environmentally Considered Products

Initiatives Related to Environmentally Conscious Products

We consider the environmental effect of products through their entire life cycle, from the procurement of raw materials to disposal of the used product. Each of the eight evaluation items shown in the table has five levels, which are evaluated at the design stage. Products that receive a sufficiently high evaluation are called "environmentally conscious products." In FY2016, 100% of JDI's products were environmentally conscious products. We have worked to reduce the total environmental effect of our products. By designing and producing environmentally conscious products, we will continue contributing to global environmental conservation and the creation of a sustainable society.

Management System for Chemical Substances Contained in Products

Since April 1, 2013, we have been operating a system (jDesc*1) that links us with suppliers and helps us to manage the chemical content of products. Under this system, suppliers register their responses to questions about the materials used in procured products. By the end of FY2016, answers regarding approximately 14,000 products had been registered.

Based on the responses from suppliers and information on the composition of JDI's products, we are able to confirm the absence in our products of chemical substances that might have a profound impact on the environment. By specifying the chemical substances included in our products and tallying up the amounts of each one, we minimize the environmental risk posed by those substances. JDI will continue to closely manage the chemical substances contained in its products.

Initiatives for Green Procurement

The JDI Group works as one to manage the chemical substances contained in its products so that it conforms to legal regulations such as the RoHS Directive and REACH Regulations and is responsive to its customers' demands.

1. Enactment of the Green Procurement Guidelines

We enacted our Green Procurement Guidelines to reflect both legal restrictions in various countries on the chemicals contained in products, as well as our customers' demands. We ask our suppliers to comply with the guidelines. The Green Procurement Guidelines are reviewed annually and are disclosed on our website.

2. Managing Suppliers' Management Systems for the Chemical Substances in Products

We ask our suppliers to establish a management system for the chemical substances contained in raw materials and other procured items that follows the Guidelines for the Management of Chemical Substances in Products set by the Joint Article Management Promotion-consortium (JAMP). Using the system that links suppliers with JDI (jDesc Survey Site), we confirm whether a management system has been established. Suppliers that do not meet JDI's standards are asked to correct and improve their management systems.
