SMC SDGs PROJECT TOP MESSAGE
Pioneering a sustainable future
with automated, labor-saving operations
within a variety of industries

We are striving to achieve sustainable
growth and technological innovation
with our core philosophy and
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Along with climate change we now face a variety of
societal issues. In order to resolve these issues and build
a society with a rich natural environment that can be
handed down to the next generation, commercial
enterprises are expected to take on SDGs.
SMC takes pride in having contributed to sustainable
growth and technological innovation within the society
at large by continuing to supply environmentally friendly
products and promoting automated, labor-saving
operations in a variety of industries. Recently, we
conducted a materiality analysis and identified 4 Material
Issues that are strongly linked to the resolutions of
problems we face as a society and drive our corporate
activities as the core pillars of our management
philosophy.
We will link these material issues to specific activities as
defined in each SMC “SDGs Target.” Each of these material
issues will be taken on in a unified manner by the entire
corporate group in order to create a sustainable future.
