Suppliers
To ensure that we manage our suppliers appropriately, we have in place procurement regulations to guide our transactions with external vendors. In selecting suppliers, we confirm their suitability as transaction partners, and conduct prior screening based on prescribed procedures.

We have developed a set of Supplier CSR Guidelines, which outlines our CSR requirements when doing business with suppliers. These guidelines are consistent with the global standard embodied in the UN Global Compact, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

Suppliers who provide products and services to the Nomura Group are expected to understand and share our philosophy on preventing corruption, child labor and respecting human rights as expressed in our CSR Supplier Guidelines, as well as adhere to the Nomura Group Code of Conduct. Suppliers are also required to sign our Supplier CSR Guidelines. In addition, Nomura reviews its procurement policy and relationship with suppliers periodically and makes improvements as necessary.

Our Approach to Donations
Donations to various groups and organizations are determined on the basis of their relative impact on accomplishing the Nomura Group's initiatives on material issues, such as contributing to sound and sustainable capital markets and the Group's social responsibility as well as to the development of a sustainable society. They are extended through a stringent screening process in accordance with internal regulations.
