Seamless New Model and New Product Introduction
At Sony UK TEC our approach to contract manufacturing is one of collaboration, so we always work towards supporting our customers long-term and building a sustainable working relationship. Through our established process, all revisions of existing products and the introduction of new products you wish to bring to market, our team will work with you to establish a risk-free and sustainable component strategy.
Commitment to Sustainability
In recent years, customers and stakeholders have grown increasingly aware of how crucial it is that companies fulfil their overall responsibilities to our communities throughout their supply chains, including procurement and production. Sony takes these concerns seriously and is working closely with its suppliers on initiatives in fields such as human rights, labour conditions, health and safety, and environmental protection.
These initiatives cover not only Sony’s own sites, but sites throughout the supply chain — from parts and material suppliers, to mineral mining operations, to production sites operated both by Sony and by subcontractors.
Our Commitment to You
This focus to a sustainable supply chain will be applied to your products as well. We will recommend established trusted vendors, or work with you to ensure your preferred suppliers meet our compliance standards. Through our established Green Partner programme, we work with suppliers and support them to implement best practices.
Supply Chain Management Philosophy
Every Sony director, executive, and employee complies with the Sony Group Code of Conduct and conducts ethical business practices. Based on this approach, Sony focuses on supply chain management and responsible procurement of minerals and works with suppliers and subcontractors to establish a responsible supply chain that ensures compliance with the Sony Supply Chain Code of Conduct and the Sony Group Policy for Responsible Supply Chan of Minerals. These efforts are undertaken in collaboration with relevant industry organisations and other stakeholders.
Looking to the Future
In order to further strengthen efforts to establish a responsible supply chain, Sony continues to expand assessments of its own sites and its suppliers, for example by having primary suppliers request secondary suppliers and other subcontractors to comply with the Sony Supply Chain Code of Conduct. Sony remains committed to ongoing efforts to raise awareness, educate, and provide training not only to employees, but also across the supply chain, communicating with suppliers to raise awareness and the capacity to respond effectively to responsible supply chain issues. Sony will also continue to strengthen its countermeasures of high-risk minerals in its procurement.
