Fiscal 2015 Centennial Give back
On the occasion of Sumitomo Chemical’s 100th anniversary in fiscal 2015, all of our employees participated in social contribution activities to express their gratitude to all of our stakeholders who had given their support. We aimed for employees throughout the entire Group to take forward-looking action on their own that tie in with the next 100 years of the Sumitomo Chemical Group.
On the dedicated Website, which was launched so that all executives and employees from around the world can easily participate, individuals posted pledges on their choice of social contribution action, later putting up action reports at the conclusion of the actions.
Over the “100-day challenge” leading up to the Group’s 100th anniversary, we had 31,742 posts (23,332 pledges and 8,410 action reports). The sentiment of gratitude as well as the actions of every individual in the Group led to our being able to give something back to society.

FY2016–2018 Our Sustainable Tree
Over the three-year period of 2016-2018, the Sumitomo Chemical Group has implemented ”Our Sustainable Tree”, specifically through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Through the common language of the SDGs, each individual pondered social issues and considered what they could do about these issues, posting this information on the dedicated Website.
The concept of “Our Sustainable Tree” can be likened to a tree rooted in society representing the agglomeration of products, technologies, employees, and initiatives of the Sumitomo Chemical Group: a tree that grows as we edge forward toward a more sustainable society.
