Green Procurement Surveys

The Yokogawa Group conducts regular surveys of the chemical substances in currently registered parts and materials. Surveys are also conducted when an existing part or material is changed or discontinued, or when an entirely new part or materials item is adopted.
As part of these surveys, we contact the suppliers of the parts and materials.

Green Procurement

The green procurement of parts and materials by the Yokogawa Group is done in accordance with the Yokogawa Green Procurement Guidelines. These guidelines were fully revised in June 2012 to comply with REACH and other environmental regulations.
