  • SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group (the Group) has changed the name of its CSR Report to the Sustainability Report from this issue. Issues to be addressed and the role required by society have shifted from responding solely to environmental matters to CSR and from CSR to sustainability. While working to address this trend, the Group is also responding to the demand for the disclosure of information from a longer-term perspective. In this Sustainability Report, the Group is looking to inform stakeholders of its various related initiatives with the aim of deepening their understanding of the activities in which it engages to realize both a sustainable society and sustainable growth of the Group itself.
  • The Group’s Long-term Vision, Vision 2030, is to support the basis of LIFE and to continue to create peace of mind for the future in order to realize a sustainable society. Guided by this vision, we have continued to place particular importance on strengthening ESG management. We have also identified and structured this report around the key ESG management issues of governance (internal control), digital transformation (DX), the environment, human resources, and fusion.
  • The information published in this report has been decided upon in reference to various report-drafting guidelines, based on internal and external surveys and third-party reviews, and in consideration of what is important for both society and the Group.
  • The Sustainability Report 2022 has been edited with an anticipated readership of all stakeholders involved with the Group, particularly institutions that evaluate ESG and long-term investors.
  • In order to ensure that information is both comprehensive and easy to read, this Sustainability Report 2022, which contains all information relating to the sustainability activities of the Group, has been centrally consolidated and posted to the Company’s website. The Report is provided in both PDF and HTML formats. The Sustainability Report 2022 PDF Edition, which has the same content as the website, can be downloaded from the “Download PDF” page.
  • The standards used for calculating the major reported performance indicators are compiled together and listed after each set of performance data.
