The Panasonic Group provides products and services to customers with support from a total of about 16,000 global suppliers. While partnering with these suppliers, the Procurement Sector is supporting the Panasonic Group's manufacturing by ensuring the stable and timely supply of quality parts and materials required for production from the global market to factories around the world at reasonable prices.
The Global Procurement Division is handling centralized and consolidated contracts and purchasing of raw materials, electrical parts, and indirect materials (MROs, equipment, stationery, etc.) commonly used by the Panasonic Group's operating companies, and thereby implement optimal procurement for the Panasonic Group through the provision of the above-mentioned materials.
We are also active in promoting green procurement, which has recently been receiving attention. We are making efforts to create new value by achieving a balance between the adoption of parts and materials with less environmental impact and cost reduction.
