Toyota pursues open and fair business, and engages in sustainability initiatives through close collaboration with business partners to raise quality in terms of safety and customer satisfaction.
At Toyota we work closely with our suppliers during manufacturing. As part of these efforts, we have globally implemented Basic Purchasing Policies according to the spirit of mutual benefit based on mutual trust. To address the increasing interest in our supply chain, we have dialogues with suppliers. Before conducting business transactions, we conclude contracts that clearly spell out legal compliance, respect for human rights, and environmental considerations. We issue Sustainable Purchasing Guidelines, share them with our suppliers, and request suppliers to implement their activities based on them.
