Our Focus on Social Issues
These days, we see many companies sourcing raw materials and parts from various different countries and regions and also manufacturing products there. This globalization of supply chains has led to a sharp rise in the number of issues requiring attention, including reducing environmental impact, managing harmful chemicals, prohibiting forced or child labor and other human rights-related concerns, and ensuring safe and healthy working environments. Companies are even expected to consider indirect impacts across their supply chains, implement measures to alleviate any negative impact caused by their business operations, and strive to solve any issues that may arise.

How to Achieve
Our Sustainability Vision
As a company that supports the healthy growth of children, we believe it is our duty to consider the impact our toy manufacturing process may exert on the global environment, to uphold human rights, and to promote healthy workplaces. The TOMY Group has always worked with our business partners to ensure appropriate factory working conditions. Furthermore, in response to increasing demands from the international community in relation to the environment and human rights, we defined Responsible Procurement as one of our eight material issues, which are vital to the achievement of sustainable growth for the TOMY Group. In May 2020, we also published our TOMY Group Responsible Procurement Guidelines. Going forward, we intend to continue promoting responsible procurement across our supply chain with proud determination as respected role models for children.
