Sumitomo Chemical’s vision for sustainability, innovation and change. A wooden ship powered by propjets. Presumably, the plants are for carbon offset. At the very least, such make-believe probably accurately reflects the company’s true inner commitment to this nonsense. God bless Japan’s anime culture.
The company stated,
“The Annual Report 2019 starts with an image of boarding a Sumitomo Chemical airship, which is also on the front cover. This year, the beginning of the new Corporate Business Plan, we added a dialogue between the Chairman of the Board and the Outside Directors, a CFO’s message, and a section on ESG strategies to further enhance our content. We hope this Annual Report serves as a bridge to our stakeholders and communicates our efforts to create new value by mobilizing the entire Sumitomo Chemical Group.”
Whatever that means….
