takes very seriously our responsibility to the communities
in which we do business. The facilities we build, the way
we operate them, and the community programs we undertake
are all designed to ensure the safety and well being of our
employees and neighbors, and the protection of the environment
Philanthropy and volunteerism
has consistently provided financial and volunteer support
to organizations in the communities in which we do business.
In addition to providing a structure for employees to participate
in company-sponsored volunteer and philanthropic activities,
SUMCO encourages all employees and their families to volunteer
their time to community organizations of their choice.
leadership and stewardship
SUMCO's commitment to environmental
quality is reflected in the certification of our Environmental
Management Systems to ISO 14001. We also sponsor and take
part in a variety of environmental-friendly programs in the
communities in which we have facilities. From stream and
river clean-ups, litter patrol, recycling initiatives and
car-pooling, to environmental education programs for schools,
we proudly join our local neighbors in supporting and protecting
our shared environment.
alliances and leadership
Although our market is the
world, SUMCO facilities are also part of the fabric of their
local business communities. We believe in taking a leadership
role in helping to strengthen the business climate and actively
participate in local economic development and business organizations.
