Social Responsibility

We’re Committed to Transforming Society Through Technology

Conducting our business in a way which is ethically responsible, safe and consistent with the company’s values and standards, is an essential element of our business model.

As a company with both global and local reach, Makino strives to be mindful of our impact on the world beyond the ways our technology improves society’s health and well-being. We’re also committed to modeling responsible business practices wherever we go, and in whatever communities we touch. We focus on three primary pillars of social responsibility: environment/sustainability, human trafficking and conflict minerals.
 

Environment and Sustainability

We seek to be innovators, leaders and contributors to a healthy environment so that everyone we touch can endure and thrive. Our design innovations constantly seek to improve the energy efficiency of our products and devise new  waste material management designs for easier recycling of metals and fluids.

Human Trafficking

We have a duty to ensure that we do not risk violating an individual's human rights by supporting forced or compulsory labor, human trafficking or other kinds of mondern slavery. We expect ourselves and our suppliers to respect human rights and dignity, and we will never source products from suppliers who violate this fundamental policy.

View Policy

Conflict Minerals

When we build our products, we only source materials from suppliers who are “conflict mineral free.” We rely on our direct suppliers to provide information on the origin of all the materials contained in components and materials supplied to us and we maintain several internal practices to support our "conflict mineral free" goal.
