Sekisui Chemical Group CSR

The Sekisui Chemical Group fulfills our corporate social responsibility (CSR) as part and parcel of efforts to put into effect the “3S Principles” of our Corporate Philosophy. CSR is a focal point of our management strategy and we strive to help solve social problems and fulfill our responsibilities to society through our business execution and processes.

In accordance with changes in social demands, we conducted a review of our CSR from E (environmental)/S (social)/G (governance) points of view and revised the conceptual diagram of CSR in 2017.

While striving to deepen mutual understanding through constructive dialogue with stakeholders and thereby assessing their expectations for use in management, we will deem a high level of governance as a cornerstone and aim to realize our global vision by promoting the further enhancement of initiatives in unison with our business operations.

Value Creation Cycle

Creating new “value” to be shared by society by “fusing” its technologies and strengths, the Sekisui Chemical Group will provide products and services that contribute to resolving social issues in “life and the environment.”

Value Creation Cycle

Sekisui Chemical Group Accomplishments

The Sekisui Chemical Group was founded in March 1947 for the purpose of the comprehensive commercialization of plastics. Thereafter, we proactively advanced into unprecedented businesses centered on plastics-related technologies and products, including starting Japan’s first automatic plastic injection molding business, and the Group’s business has been steadily expanded. It is also a unique strength of the Group that there are many cases where businesses cultivated over our long history are still blossoming, such as the interlayer film for automobiles, one of the main products of today, the origins of which date back to 1958.
