Contributing to Society Through Our Business Activities

SEKISUI Chemical was one of the first global organizations to align business operations around corporate social responsibility (CSR). We place considerable emphasis on balancing social and corporate values. With this in mind, we have positioned our CSR “Three Prominences” as the environment, customer service and quality, and human resources.

Our CSR initiatives give our employees the opportunity to donate their time to various socially minded activities, including environmental causes and events, investing in the next generation through the education and tutoring of children, and local community improvement programs. Through personal time allowances and organized corporate events, employees are encouraged to give back to their local communities.

SEKISUI Chemical has been selected as one of the 2021 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the world. The company has made the list six times, including the last four consecutive years.

This great achievement shows that our attitude, efforts and accomplishments toward establishing a sustainable business base from the ESG management has been recognized. The 2020 Global 100 was announced in January at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The Canadian magazine Corporate Knights created The Global 100 index in 2005. With a circulation of more than 147,000, Corporate Knights is focused on the intersection of business and society. Calling itself the Voice for Clean Capitalism, the magazine is the most prominent brand in the clean capitalism media space.

For its Global 100 index, Corporate Knights ranks companies from all over the world from all business sectors. In the 2021 listing, it evaluated nearly 8,080 companies by looking at corporate sustainability performance from various perspectives, including environment, society, and governance (ESG). Using publicly available data, such as financial and sustainability reports, it also examines up to 24 key performance indicators, including resource management, employee management, financial management, clean revenue, and supplier performance. Eligible companies must have gross revenues that meet a minimum PPP, or purchasing power parity, which produces an exchange rate that equalizes currencies globally. In 2018, the minimum was $1 billion.

SHIFT 2019 -Fusion-

The SEKISUI Chemical Group is working on its midterm management plan, “SHIFT 2019 -Fusion-” (from fiscal 2017 to fiscal 2019) as the first step toward a new phase of growth. The “S” in SHIFT stands for sustainable, and the Group is pushing to establish a sustainable business base from the viewpoint of ESG.

The SEKISUI Chemical Group will continue to improve the lives of the people around the world, protect the Earth’s environment, and contribute toward the sustainable growth of society.

In addition to the Global 100, we are proud to be included on several other prestigious indexes, including:

Dow Jones Sustainability Indices
FTSE4Good Index
Ethibel Pioneer and Excellence Investment Register
RobecoSAM Sustainability Award

Environment

Future sustainability begins with environmental leadership. That’s why we build our business growth around delivering products that have minimal impact on the environment and contribute to the prevention of global warming, the preservation of biological diversity, and the development of a sound material-cycle society.

Customer Satisfaction and Quality

“We consider a customer’s feedback as the beginning of our manufacturing.”

Our motto is a prime example of how we value the opinions of the people we serve. Our goal is to progress and grow with our customers by constantly delivering value so that they continue to choose our products and services. This invaluable feedback is not only essential for improving the quality of our products and manufacturing services, but it is also essential for improving our people and manufacturing systems.

Human Resources

Fostering a diverse workforce allows us to take advantage of the values and experiences they have—giving our employees opportunity to thrive and grow professionally by contributing to our business locally and abroad. As globalization increases, SEKISUI America Corporation is poised for continued leadership in this category.
