Respect for Human Resources
People make the enterprise - it is no exaggeration to say that the ability of individual members of an enterprise makes or breaks its future. Identifying and developing quality human resources based on a deep respect, is a Sumitomo tradition that continues to this days.
Attaching importance to technology
Sumitomo’s original copper business centered on the nanban refining technique, which was the most advanced in those days. As this fact illustrates, the active development and adoption of new technology has always been a driving force in the evolution of Sumitomo and the group.
Sumitomo’s long-range business planning spirit was developed in its original copper mining operation, which required a long-term, continuous outlook. Throughout Sumitomo’s history, the managers have consistently adhered to a long-term broad perspective that includes the well-being of society at large.
Mutual prosperity & respect for public good
Sumitomo’s second Director General Teigo Iba once said, “Sumitomo’s business must benefit not only Sumitomo itself but also the nation and society in general.“ Remaining faithful to these words, Sumitomo has maintained the tradition of always harmonizing its business with the public interest.
