Sumitomo Riko Group Corporate Action Charter

In our efforts to realize the Vision of the Sumitomo Riko Group, we position CSR that consistently creates value at the heart of our management, and the Sumitomo Riko Group Corporate Action Charter is the basis of the Group’s CSR activities. Our Corporate Action Charter was established in March 2006 by resolution of the Board of Directors following deliberations by the CSR Committee that was formed in 2005. The Corporate Action Charter was revised in October 2014 and April 2019 to reflect changes in the business environment.

Basic Policy on CSR and Sustainability

 With the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Compact in mind, we have categorized the aspects of CSR management into the following three perspectives and established them as our Basic CSR and Sustainability Policies. Based on these policies, we aim to "create social value" by addressing and seeking solutions for social issues, such as those represented by the SDGs, improve our corporate value and public value, and grow sustainably within society.

(1) Take action that does not harm society and the global environment (minimization of negative impacts)
   - Appropriate responses to risk in areas such as human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption
(2) Contribute to solving social and global environmental challenges (maximization of positive impacts)
   - Businesses and social contribution activities that provide solutions to social challenges
   - Human diversity that contributes to the emergence of innovation
(3) Improve engagement with stakeholders through communication and raise corporate value with a long-term view
   - Information disclosure, dialogue, collaboration
