Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

As an organization, we have a longstanding commitment to corporate responsibility. Through a multitude of initiatives, we strive to better our communities.

Corporate Social Responsibility 

Corporate social responsibility is not something we do. It is something that is in our DNA. It is at the foundation of our business, as well as that of our parent company, Sumitomo Chemical.

We are committed to the communities we live and work in, and we support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals as our compass. Across the organization, we align our efforts within each of those goals.

Zero Hunger (SDG-2)

We strive to reduce food waste and improve the freshness and appeal of fruits and vegetables by supporting various food banks both financially and through ongoing volunteer efforts. We helped launch the No Taste for Waste campaign in an effort to educate and reduce household food waste.
