Green Purchasing


In 2005, Akebono has made a decision to strengthen and thoroughly implement a policy of environmentally conscious selection of raw materials, parts and indirect materials. In January of 2006, we have issued our "Green Purchasing Guidelines" to encourage our suppliers to make their products and manufacturing processes more environmentally friendly.

Following these initiatives, in March of 2008 we have updated our "Green Purchasing Guidelines" to expand environmentally conscious selection procedures to general purchasing goods (office supplies and equipment, furniture, etc.).
