This fiscal year, Sumitomo Chemical has adjusted the positioning of its annual report and CSR Report, reorganizing them as an integrated report, which is Sumitomo Chemical’s new Annual Report.
With the aim of communicating its value creation story in a way that is easy to understand for shareholders and other investors, as well as a broad array of other stakeholders, the new Annual Report comprehensively brings together financial information and non-Financial information. In addition to a report on financial results and information on the strengths of businesses and business strategies, the Annual Report includes information on Sumitomo Chemical’s corporate governance system as well as its environmental and corporate social responsibility initiatives. New sections are also added, including a message from outside directors, feature articles on businesses that are the focus of attention, and information on the value creation models of each business sector. The content-rich report also includes many photographs.
The previous CSR Report has been renamed the Sustainability Data Book, and it can be accessed on Sumitomo Chemical’s website. Sumitomo Chemical continues to issue the Investors’ Handbook as a tool for obtaining a deeper understanding of the Company.
Sumitomo Chemical hopes the three reports it produces serve as bridges to its stakeholders and communicate its efforts to achieve sustainable growth by mobilizing the entire Sumitomo Chemical Group to create new value.
