Sumitomo Forestry Group's Sustainability Management

The Sumitomo Forestry Group conducts sustainable management that contributes to building sustainable and prosperous society through the business utilizing “wood.”

The Sumitomo Forestry Group has identified five high material issues and set them as the Group’s CSR material issues. 15 targets are set based on the material issues within the Mid-Term Sustainability Targets which incorporate the specific non-financial indices from the Mid-Term Management Plan to align with our business and sustainability strategies.

We have positioned the conservation of biodiversity as a priority issue while promoting sustainable forest management and timber procurement both in and outside of Japan.

We see the provision of products and services which generate value able to build a prosperous society as an important role that includes standardizing long-lasting, quality homes.

We are furthering the reduction of our environmental impact overall, including the reduction of greenhouse gases and industrial waste, with our focus on businesses such as housing as well as timber building materials.

We aim to build a safe and healthy workplace where all driven employees can actively participate regardless of their attributes.

We are working to make compliance pervasive, and to reinforce the mechanism for managing business risk—which also encompasses Group companies—by constantly managing prioritized risks.

Performance results through fiscal 2018 of the former Mid-Term CSR Management Plan formulated in fiscal 2015 which had set fiscal 2020 as the target year for its initiatives are disclosed.

The Sumitomo Forestry Group strives to have active dialogue and cooperation with its stakeholders so that it may respond to their interests and expectations and earn the trust of society.

The Sumitomo Forestry Group strives forward in sustainable management based on separate policies for each issue.
