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.
In 2020, SEKISUI Chemical selected as one of the 2020 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World in recognition of our actions and environmental leadership. 2020 is the third consecutive and fifth time overall that SEKISUI CHEMICAL has been included in this index.
Global 100 is an index created and maintained by Canadian company, Corporate Knights Inc. It ranks major companies around the world from all sectors (approximately 7,400 companies in 2020), by looking at corporate sustainability performance from various perspectives such as environment, society, and governance (ESG), and selects the top 100 companies.
The 2020 Global 100 was announced at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting (Davos Annual Meeting) held in Davos, Switzerland, from January 21 to 24. SEKISUI CHEMICAL was recognized for achievements in multiple evaluation criteria this year, including clean revenue, resource and clean air productivity, innovation capacity, safety, and employee retention. Ranked 12th, SEKISUI CHEMICAL was the highest ranked Japanese company among 6 Japanese companies listed in the Global 100.
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:
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.
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.
