Social and SDG Contribution Activities
Through its social contribution activities, SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group seeks to develop a climate and people that can contribute to solving social issues.
Promotion of social contribution activities from an SDG perspective
SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group contributes to solving social issues not only through its 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. SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group defines and promotes activities to contribute to the SDGs as the subset of the Group’s social contribution activities that lead to the formation of a sustainable society as targeted by the SDGs, positioning the environment, the next generation and local communities as the three main fields of activities.
Actions that expand the ability to contribute to solving social issues
SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group believes that awareness of the SDGs is essential for contributing to solving social issues. By conducting social contribution activities from the viewpoint of the SDGs, the Group as a whole is looking to improve its ability to contribute to solving social issues. We will use the SDGs as a guidepost on what we can do to solve social issues as a member of society, and link this to our actions starting with those nearest to us.
Deploying activities to contribute to the SDGs Group-wide
Coordinating with the people in charge in each Group company, the Group spreads awareness of the SDGs while deploying autonomous activities to contribute to the SDGs by individual workplaces and employees, to foster a corporate climate that contributes to the SDGs. Essentially, the Group is shifting its awareness to goal-oriented activities to contribute to the SDGs, while continuing unchanged the actions to contribute to society conducted at each Group workplace. In so doing, the Group is transforming its activities into those that lead to the solving of social issues.

Promoting New Activities through the SDG Challenge
SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group is steadily working to increase understanding of the SDGs and interest in social issues by actively raising awareness that mainly involves disseminating information on each Group company’s SDG contribution activities and sharing SDG-related information with those in charge.
As part of the SDG Challenge, the Group is also pursuing new activities, such as providing information on social contribution activity programs that show the relevance of SDGs in order to encourage people to take on the challenge of trying new, untried activities.
Fiscal 2021 Activities (Results)
As part of our SDG contribution activities, we implemented 75 initiatives at Group workplaces in Japan, of which 32 were new SDG Challenge activities. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of these activities involved programs that could be implemented without gathering people (e.g., donating unused items and supporting food banks). Nevertheless, we believe that engaging in activities that differed from the past were very significant in terms of broadening our perspective on social contributions.
