Under the corporate philosophy “Dedicated to the Fight against Disease and Pain,” we at Ono Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. have been contributing to society by developing pharmaceutical products. We believe that sound business operations cannot be achieved only by ourselves and that it is essential to obtain the understanding and cooperation of all stakeholders involved in procurement, research, development, production, and distribution.
To promote sustainable procurement, we have established the Basic Policy for Procurement Activities and the ONO Sustainable Procurement Code for Business Partner, eventually leading to achieving sustainable social development throughout the supply chain. We seek to enhance the corporate value of both Ono Pharmaceutical and its suppliers by building a sound network and promoting further cooperation with suppliers through sustainable procurement.
Basic Policy for Procurement Activities
All Ono Pharmaceutical employees involved in procurement activities are required to comply with the Basic Policy for Procurement Activities, created based on ONO Group Code of Conduct, Compliance Global Policy, and Ono Pharmaceutical Global Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy.
