We aim to be a global organization that constantly stays a step ahead in dealing with change, creates new value, and contributes broadly to society.
Sumitomo Corporation Group conducts business activities in a wide range of industries on a global scale, with its six business units and regional organizations all over the world working closely together.
Strategically and organically integrating our robust business foundation and our diverse, high-level functions, we create new values by staying a step ahead in dealing with changes and transcending existing frameworks as a way to help solve social issues.
Sumitomo was founded around 400 years ago, in the 17th century. Based on the founder, Masatomo Sumitomo’s idea of how merchants should conduct business, Sumitomo’s modern-day business philosophy “Business Principles” places importance on not being misled by changes that are happening right before us, but pursuing integrity and sound management at all times, rather than easy gains.
