Accelerating Growth through Fusion

We plan to further evolve our involvement in "Co-Creation", which involved the themes of growth and creation centering on new developments, etc., during the previous Medium-term Management Plan, and to "fuse" technologies, business opportunities, and management resources that also target existing businesses, as well as accelerating growth by strengthening links both inside and outside the company. We will create 50 billion yen by involvement in this "fusion" among the approx. 130 billion yen, which is the target increase in sales company-wide.
For example, the aim is to fuse the plastic sheet technology for molds in which the Urban Infrastructure and Environmental Products Company is involved, and the foam technology of the High Performance Plastics Company, for use by aircraft manufacturers in high-performance interior materials.

Further Strengthening CSR Management

Towards establishment of sustainable growth for the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group, we plan to strengthen CSR management, which is the basis of growth.
In light of changes to social requirements, etc., we have refocused CSR from the viewpoints of E(nvironment) / S(ociety) / G(overnanace), and have revised the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group CSR conceptual scheme to promote a unified involvement with business.
As well as fulfilling our responsibilities to society in the business process through our three "pledges to society" based on corporate governance, we also aim to contribute to solve social problems through business using our "three prominences". Further, we are also promoting constructive dialog by strengthening our relations with stakeholders in order to improve our corporate value.
