JFE Steel Procurement Guidelines

JFE Steel has established these JFE Steel Procurement Guidelines in accordance with the JFE Group Standards of Conduct and the JFE Group Basic Policy on Human Rights, aiming to enhance sustainability across its entire supply chain.

We share these guidelines with our business partners and promote sustainability initiatives throughout our supply chain. In addition to asking all business partners to implement the guidelines, we also ask that partners’ own suppliers be encouraged to do the same.

JFE Steel is committed to maintaining and improving mutual understanding and trust with its business partners as part of pursuing mutual development as a true business partner.
