Management of Chemical Substances

In order to provide safe products and reduce environmental impact, Yonex, together with our suppliers, has been promoting initiatives to manage chemical substances properly. In 2022, we compiled a list of restricted chemical substances and “Yonex Chemical Substance Management Guidelines.”
We send the list and guidelines to our suppliers around the world to ensure that they understand our initiatives and request cooperation in the investigation of chemical substances contained in their products when necessary.
