Sumitomo Chemical got established in 1913 by producing fertilizers from sulfur dioxide emitted from smelting operations at the Besshi copper mine in Japan with the aim of solving environmental problems caused by the emissions. Today we continue to contribute to solving problems the global community faces and to improving the quality of life of people around the world. This in areas related to e.g. energy, food and environment and by capitalizing on our advanced technologies.
To strengthen our commitment, we aim to promote the concept of sustainability in line with corporate strategies, so that Sumitomo Chemical is recognized in Europe as a company that generates profit while respecting people and the planet, supporting economic and social development and building a brand known as sustainable while delivering value to its various stakeholders.
