Social Contribution Activities
Proactively Working to Contribute to the Society as a Company in Tune with Local Communities
Our PhilosophyProactively Supporting Interaction Between Employees and Society
The Sekisui Chemical Group, which develops businesses globally, considers one of its important roles as a corporate citizen to be the resolving of issues facing local communities by means of its business activities.
In addition to contributing to society through our business activities, we also propose social contribution activities that make use of our corporate characteristics and assets in a variety of local community-related areas and, in aiming to grow in step with those local communities, position those activities primarily in the fields of the environment, the next generation, and the local communities themselves.
In the environment field of our social contribution activities, we put into practice the three initiatives—expand and create environment-contributing products; reduce environmental impact; and conserve the natural environment—stipulated in Sekisui Environment Sustainability Vision 2030 and believe that this will lead to contributions to the sustainable society which is the aim of the SDGs.
In the field of the next generation, we conduct career training that makes full use of the characteristics of our businesses and are working so that children acquire the knowledge, techniques and concepts that will lead to them living independently as members of society.
In the field of local communities, we are aiming for the sustainable society detailed under the SDGs and, in addition to deepening our understanding of the issues society has faced in recent years, we are developing volunteer activities that will lead to the finding of solutions to those issues.
To make these ideals reality, we believe that it is essential for all employees to be actively involved with local communities and have established an accumulating sabbatical system with the goal of encouraging volunteering, paid for some of the costs required when employees themselves have chosen to participate in activities that contribute to society, and have otherwise created mechanisms that allow greater numbers of employees to participate in activities that contribute to society.
Employees of the Sekisui Chemical Group engage themselves with local communities, cooperate with one another, and are working to improve the way in which people live to make it sustainable in the future within three areas of activities. We believe that these activities will help to achieve the “creation of a sustainable society” called for in the SDGs.
