Materials Sustainability: SEKISUI Environment Sustainability Vision 2030

In 2013, the SEKISUI Chemical Group formulated the SEKISUI Environment Sustainability Vision 2030 as its Long-term Environmental Management Vision. We understand that corporate activities and all issues relating to the Earth’s environment have both a direct effect and indirect impact on biodiversity. With that in mind, we recognize that solving a range of important issues—such as climate change, the depletion of natural resources, and ecosystem degradation—is how we work globally toward realizing “an Earth with maintained biodiversity.”

A selection of our sustainability efforts:

  • Lessening our environmental impact by conserving energy and other resources
  • Targeting a net sales percentage to at least 50% of environment-contributing products
  • ISO 14001 certification, the international standard for an effective environmental management system (EMS)
  • Training programs for environmental personnel
  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing activities
  • Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle throughout products’ life cycles
  • Introducing V to Heim smart homes
  • Implementing new waste reduction activities
  • Reducing water consumption
  • Increasing environment-contributing product development, such as underground heat collection pipes and a water-soluble film to reduce water waste
  • Improving green spaces around our business sites
  • Making energy-saving investments
  • Creating eco-factories
