Sumitomo Chemical’s Commitment to Society and Biodiversity

The Sumitomo Chemical Group works to achieve an equitable balance between profitable business operations, preservation of the environment, safety, product quality, and positive social activity. We pursue our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities with consideration for the interests of all our stakeholders, including our stockholders, employees, business partners, and the local residents of all regions in which we conduct business.

We believe it is our duty as one of the leading corporations in chemistry worldwide to place CSR as a key management issue. Our CSR efforts include diminishing the environmental impact in our product operations both internally and with third parties, as well as elevating education and the quality of life globally. Through our endeavors in these areas, we hope to play a significant role in helping to build a sustainable society and environment.
