Communication with Our Suppliers

  • The stable procurement of recovered paper—the main raw material for paperboard—is essential for the sustainable growth of the Rengo Group. At each of our paperboard mills, we regularly gather major suppliers of recovered paper to provide them with reports on matters such as Rengo’s management policies and the production status of our paperboard mills. Both we and our suppliers identify safety and quality-related problems when receiving recovered paper, and work to create better transaction environments. Our executive officers in charge of production present reports such as overviews of cellulose beads manufactured by our Takefu Plant as a plastic alternative or reports on the status of CO2 emissions reductions through the use of biomass power generation, fostering a deeper understanding of our Group’s SDG approach.
