Aiming Higher Always
with “Banji-nissei” in Mind
Do your sincere best as an individual in every aspect of your life.
This is the meaning of “Banji-nissei”, one of the tenets of the Sumitomo Spirit, handed down for 400 years in the Sumitomo Electric Group. With this tenet held in their hearts, all employees of the Group are committed to their responsibilities every day.
The tenet has much in common with the attitudes adopted by sportspeople and instructors, which is the reason why the Sumitomo Electric Group supports a wide variety of sports, including athletics, and the athletes themselves. For our team in particular, we are reinforcing various efforts to develop athletes who can compete in the global arena. By providing support for sports, we aim to contribute to developing sports and local communities.
This special issue of id features some members of Sumitomo Electric’s Track and Field Team, who are aiming higher without forgetting “Banji-nissei”, and shares with you their individual passion for athletics.
