SMBC Group defines sustainability as “creating a society in which today’s generation can
enjoy economic prosperity and well-being, and pass it on to future generations.” To contribute to the global transformation into a better society, we will engage and act together with customers and other stakeholders.
In 2020, we established a ten-year plan
based on our Sustainability Statement to set out the key pillars and long-term goals to deliver outcomes for our customers, shareholders, employees and the wider society. We have also made further commitments
to strength our efforts against climate change.
SMBC is a leading signatory for JUET Principles (principles for financing a just and urgent energy transition) which seeks to mobilize investment and accelerate financing for a just energy transition in developing countries.
