Reducing Serious Incidents
SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group positions Governance (Internal Control) as the foundation of its ability to remain a company that is trusted by its stakeholders. To ensure that we can continue to help solve social issues, we recognize the critical need to prevent incidents that undermine public trust and significantly damage our corporate value. With this in mind, we will work tirelessly to strengthen internal control on a Group-wide and global basis. Under the current Medium-term Management Plan, we have identified areas and items that could have a significant impact on the Group as a whole, and are working to improve our ability to prevent problems before they occur and to detect and respond to issues at the earliest possible stage. Group-wide initiatives and measures specific to each divisional company and business site have progressed as planned. While there has been no impact on human health or the environment, there was a serious incident involving the leakage of wastewater containing radioactive materials at one of the Group’s business sites. In the next Medium-term Management Plan, we will continue our efforts to minimize Group-wide major risks, while thoroughly and promptly implementing measures to prevent recurrence.
