“Giving Back Togther”

With a rise in understanding of the business world’s impact on how we live our lives, every modern company’s role has evolved. With an eye toward people, profit and planet, our company forged its identity in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) with strength and conviction. And with that commitment, “contributing broadly to society” isn’t just a Sumitomo Corporation (SC) value; It inhabits our DNA.

Our tradition of responsibility dates back to the Besshi Copper Mine reforestation projects, and moves us forward through our SC Material Issues initiatives. Our philanthropic arm, SCOA Foundation, continues its contributions through education and charity, and our business groups also seek out opportunities that promote responsible environmental practices throughout the company and across the globe. SCOA fulfills its responsibility through synergistic efforts in the pursuit of growth for our company, the type of growth that fulfills the promise established in our corporate motto, “Enriching lives and the world,” in the way we work best: together.
