Concerning Election to Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World
Feb 5, 2009
SEKISUI CHEMICAL CO., LTD. (President: Naotake Okubo) has been elected as one of the Most Sustainable Companies in the World, known as "Global 100," for the second consecutive year.

Started in 2005, "Global 100" comprises the top 100 companies announced by Corporate Knights, Inc., in Canada after evaluation of approximately 1,800 of the world's most sustainable major corporations from a wide variety of fields based on survey analysis data provided by Innovest Strategic Value Advisors Inc. This is the result of evaluation of corporations from the perspective of non-financial elements such as the environment, society and governance, which are considered to affect corporate value.
The "Global 100" announcement is made in time for the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland every year (Davos Annual Meeting) and was made on January 28 this year.
Corporations from various industries from 15 countries around the world were selected as the top 100, fifteen of which are from Japan including SEKISIUI CHEMICAL.

Based on the corporate philosophy of "Create social value while responding to stakeholders' expectations," it is the aim of SEKISUI CHEMICAL to realize contributions to society through business. On the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) front too, SEKISUI CHEMICAL contributes to society through business based on the Three Prominences: Environment, CS & Quality and Human Resources, and offers products capable of contributing to the solution of social problems such as global warming and water shortages including sewage rehabilitation systems and housing equipped with solar power systems.

In the future, while reinforcing CSR-related initiatives, SEKISUI CHEMICAL will undertake initiatives to realize its corporate philosophy with the aim of achieving sustainable development.
