Structure for Promoting Our Sustainability
Corporate sustainability in the Sumitomo Corporation Group is promoted through a process of coordination between the Corporate Sustainability Department, which undertakes the planning of measures to promote sustainability, the sustainability managers and staff of each Business Unit's Planning & Coordination Department, and the sustainability staff of domestic and overseas regional organizations. ln this process, we take into consideration the social and environmental issues and the needs of our wide range of stakeholders. The Corporate Sustainability Committee acts as an advisory body to the Management Council and discusses important policies, measures, and initiatives relating to the promotion of sustainability. In addition, we have established the Sustainability Advisory Board, which consists external experts, to provide advice and recommendations on overall sustainability management.
