Contribution to the SDGs
Basic ideas and policies
The Resonac Group is committed to contributing to solving social issues, with a focus on the SDGs, through its business activities. We have positioned the focus of our corporate activities as contributing to SDGs 12 and 17 as a Co-creative Chemical Company that seeks to create a recycling-oriented society. Goals that we contribute to through businesses and products are in the upper part of the semicircle, with goals that we contribute to through our business foundation in the base. Going beyond areas where we already contribute through our businesses, we are looking ahead with the aim to contributing to the creation of a future that we seek to realize through the power of chemistry.
Selection criteria and processes for SDGs Contribution Products/Services
In order to visualize how individual businesses and products currently contribute to the SDGs, we select "SDGs contribution products/services" based on our own criteria. In addition, for some products, we consider what we should do to further contribute in the future and disclose them as SDGs contribution stories for the future.
We started by charting the situation of products/services on two axes—one for the link between the goals or targets of the products/services and the SDGs, and the other for the social sphere of influence—and defined a region for SDGs Contribution Products/Services. We deliberated and examined these at the Sustainability Promotion Committee and approved them at the Management Committee.
A chart was created setting criteria and defining a region for SDGs Contribution Products/Services (see below)..
Model contribution plans up to 2030 were created for three target products/services (Plastic chemical recycling, graphite electrode and regenerative medicine) in consideration of the value chain.
