The Sumitomo Spirit grew out of the guiding principles set out by Masatomo Sumitomo the founding father of the House of Sumitomo. The Sumitomo Spirit has been passed down and elaborated through the generations in the form of our “Business Principles”. Through the years beliefs and principles behind business decisions have been included.
Today the Sumitomo Spirit has become an amazing asset held and respected by all Sumitomo Group companies including SEWS-E.
Article 1. Sumitomo shall achieve prosperity on solid foundation by placing prime importance on integrity and sound management in the conduct of its business.
Article 2. Sumitomo’s business interest must always be in harmony with public interest; Sumitomo shall adapt to good times and bad times but will not pursue immoral business.
