  The goal of the “ESG Finance Awards Japan” is to share with society the progressive initiatives of institutional investors, financial institutions, intermediaries, and companies that have made a positive impact on ESG finance and environmental and social business, leading to the promotion and expansion of ESG finance.
  An Environmentally Sustainable Company is a company that incorporates important environment related opportunities and risks into its management strategies, to create positive environmental effects and improve its corporate value. They are selected based on evaluation criteria such as “risks/business opportunities/strategies,” “KPI,” and “governance.”


  SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group has adopted “Innovation for the Earth” as its vision statement in the Group’s long-term vision, “Vision 2030,” declaring that it will “support the basis of LIFE and continue to create ‘peace of mind for the future’ in order to realize a sustainable society” through innovation. The Group is also focusing on ESG management, with the aim of accomplishing both realization of a sustainable society and the sustainable growth of the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group, by viewing environmental and social issues more strategically and working to resolve them.

  In receiving this award, SEKISUI CHEMICAL was mainly recognized for its integration of environmental issues into its business strategy, its high awareness of environmental issues in promoting ESG management, and its planning and implementation of an environmental medium-term plan backcasted from its long-term environmental vision. Also, being aware of the interconnectedness of environmental issues and aiming to create a planet in which biodiversity is preserved were other reasons that were evaluated.

  Going forward, SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group will continue its activities aimed at resolving social issues and being a company that is trusted by its stakeholders, aiming to achieve both a sustainable society and the growth of the Group.
