12. Responsible consumption and production

We need to use energy and resources, which are in limited supply, to manufacture chemical products. In the production process, unneeded substances (byproducts) or waste may also be generated. Sumitomo Chemical is pursuing Green Processes, which minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing to the greatest extent possible, and developing Clean Products, which are safer, more environmentally friendly, and of higher quality.
