    Cooperation with Sumitomo Chemical on circular economy initiative

    SEKISUI CHEMICAL has succeeded in developing production technology for transforming waste into ethanol, and Sumitomo Chemical possesses technological know-how in manufacturing polyolefin. The two companies have agreed to form a strategic alliance to benefit society by deploying technology for manufacturing polyolefin using waste as a raw material.
    Pilot production for each will begin in fiscal 2022, and full-scale market launch is expected in fiscal 2025.
    This alliance between the two companies will make it possible to introduce this waste-derived ethanol into the production cycle of organic chemical materials, such as daily-use plastics, and will enable the creation of a circular economy that uses waste as a raw material to manufacture polyolefin. SEKISUI CHEMICAL hopes to contribute toward the creation of a sustainable society by reducing the use of new fossil fuels, and at the same time, reducing both CO2 emissions from incinerating waste as well as plastic waste.

    Received Minister of the Environment Award for Global Warming Prevention Activity

    For Housing Company, we recognize the importance of addressing environmental and social issues and building a solid administrative foundation that drives our business’s growth. As such, we promote ESG-focused business practices and work to develop and advance energy self-sufficient housing with our company’s SEKISUI HEIM brand, by delivering products that ensure both financial stability and safety during natural disasters.
    Our efforts to develop and promote energy self-sufficient housing were recognized by the Japanese government, earning us an award from the Minister of the Environment for our work in combating global warming. Our energy self-sufficient homes utilize storage systems (batteries, EVs, etc.) to accumulate energy generated from high capacity solar panels that, when used efficiently, can help achieve housing powered entirely by renewable energy.
    SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group has also initiated a energy buy-back service called SMARTHEIM DENKI for customers living in a Sekisui Heim home. As we lead the way in promoting the increased adoption of renewable energy solutions, we promise to continue tackling the objectives set forth in the SDGs by providing transformative solutions.
