NSK Supplier CSR Guidelines

The NSK Supplier CSR Guidelines are shared with our suppliers. The guidelines ask that they provide safe products, comply with laws and regulations, and take measures to protect the environment and human rights while ensuring occupational health and safety. Our suppliers are committed to following these guidelines.

In October 2022, NSK revised the Guidelines to the 4th edition in order to respond to recent demands from global society, such as climate change countermeasures and respect for human rights. We have also incorporated clauses on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance into basic transaction agreements.
