Sumitomo Corporation Group's Unique Business Activities

Creating new value by staying a step ahead in dealing with change and transcending existing frameworks as a way to help solve social issues

The Sumitomo Corporation Group has expanded its scope of business to cover the upstream segment (resources development, manufacturing, etc.), midstream segment (distribution, etc.), and downstream segment (retailing, service, etc.) to develop its value chain.

At the same time, the global economy is undergoing a paradigm shift, a so-called "axis change" which has brought about a shift in economic growth from developed countries to emerging countries. In this changing environment, the Sumitomo Corporation Group is expected to identify needs based on social issues and offer solutions by transcending existing frameworks.

Creating new value by staying a step ahead in dealing with change and transcending existing frameworks to help solve social issues—this is what the Sumitomo Corporation Group does in its business activities and what differentiates the Group from the rest of the pack. Our enthusiasm for benefiting and contributing to society is in our DNA that has been inherited from our predecessors. Through our sound business activities, we will strive to continue our commitment to society far into the future.
