Shared Growth

To create a sound industrial ecosystem in which economic and social values circulate in a virtuous cycle, we establish partnerships with excellent partners and operate a transparent purchasing process to practice our 'fair corporate citizenship' promise of action.

Subcontract council

LS Cable & System operates a subcontract council to create a fair and transparent subcontracting culture and establish legitimacy in transactions with partners. The council is chaired by the head of the purchasing department and consists of three members: the head of the legal team and the head of the purchasing planning team. The three members check unfair risks at the monthly regular council meeting.

Providing fair opportunities to start trading
We do not restrict or discriminate against companies selected and registered as vendors in terms of opportunities to participate in bids for initiating transactions without justifiable reasons.

LS Cable & System has strengthened related business regulations to prevent unfair transactions. First, to ensure the fairness of contract signing with partners, we introduced the ‘LS Cable & System contracting guideline’ in our purchasing business regulations with the aim of preventing unfair trade practices that may occur when an employee transacts with a partner.

Also, By reinforcing the ‘business partner registration business rules,’ we make sure that the purchasing manager is clearly familiar with all the criteria for selecting partners, and selects partners in a fair and transparent manner. The fair trade-related policy of LS Cable & System is posted on the electronic purchasing system (e-Procurement, http://epro.lscable.com) so that unfair practices can be checked both internally and externally by enabling not only employees, but also partners to read it.
