A global procurement and sales network based on a spirit of cooperation and fairness
Working Together on “Procurement for Engineering, Manufacturing and Marketing”
The Yamaha Motor Group regards its relationship with the supply chain not just as conducting procurement, but as procurement that emphasizes the incorporation of both cost and quality into its engineering, manufacturing and marketing.
Fair and Clean Procurement Activities
In the Basic Purchasing Policies, Yamaha Motor states its commitment to “conduct fair trading, based on trust and cooperation, and to constantly strive to build better relationships with suppliers through activities to improve quality, price, delivery times, and other factors,” and sets out policies including “fair and impartial trading,” “compliance and confidentiality,” and “emphasis on the global environment.”
Based on the CSR Guidelines for Suppliers and Green Procurement Guidelines, we also promote CSR efforts throughout the supply chain, in which our policies on safety and quality, human rights and the working environment, consideration for the environment, risk management practices, and strict compliance are communicated to suppliers. Furthermore, we are pursuing activities to address environmental issues together with our suppliers, such as management and reduction of environmentally hazardous substances and the efficient use of resources and energy.
Activities at Dealerships
As our contact point with customers around the world, dealerships play an important role in conveying Yamaha’s “next Kando.” By strengthening relationships with dealers through regularly held dealer meetings and activities to promote safe driving and support local communities, the Yamaha Motor Group is building a sales network that provides common value.
