Social Contribution Activities

Proactively Working to Contribute to the Society as a Company in Tune with Local Communities

Management Approach

Our PhilosophyContributing to the Achievement of a Sustainable Society Through the Promotion of Social Contribution Activities Leveraging the Distinctive Features of Our Company.

Sekisui Chemical Group contributes to society not only through our business activities but also through a variety of social contribution activities which we promote through interactions with society leveraging the strengths and resources of the Group.

In addition, these activities focus on the perspectives of “the environment,” “the next generation,” and “the local community” within their various fields, and we make efforts and promote them in order to contribute to the SDG directive of “creating a sustainable society.”


For example, in terms of the “environment,” we carry out Environmental Management Policy in the form of proactive social contribution activities related to nature preservation and other local environmental factors.

“The next generation” refers to our career training using the distinctive characteristics of our business. We carry out initiatives to help children acquire the knowledge, techniques, and way of thinking that they’ll need to be independent and productive members of society.

In terms of “the local community,” in addition to deepening understanding of the problems faced by local communities in recent years, we are also expanding volunteer activities to move toward resolution of these issues.


We are also involved in these initiatives aside from just as a company. Our employees are also involved on an individual basis, and with contributing to society at the core of these activities, we have created a framework for enabling larger numbers of employees to participate in social contribution activities. We have set up a system for accumulating time off with the goal of acquiring greater participation in volunteer work, and through support such as paying a portion of the expenses required for these social contribution activities, we are making efforts to create a system which will inspire greater number of employees to take part in social contribution activities of their own accord.
