In recent years, we have seen many social issues, including worsening global warming, depletion of resources, increasingly frequent and severe disasters, and disrepair and aging of social infrastructure. With this in mind, we have established VISION 2022, our mid-term management plan, based on the society we envisioned around 2030. The plan sets out the value we aim to provide—environmental friendliness, safety and security, social comfort and vitality—in the mobility, energy and communications fields that are our main focus. The Sumitomo Spirit is about mutual prosperity and respect for the public good.
COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated the changes taking place in people's lives and the conditions in which we do business. But the Sumitomo Electric Group has always responded strongly and flexibly to each change that has taken place in society, and has continued to achieve steady growth. We will continue striving to reach our ideal future state, a "Glorious Excellent Company," † drawing on the strengths we have built since we were first established—connectivity and transmission technologies, our manufacturing excellence and our employees who embody the Sumitomo Spirit. We will mobilize the entire the Sumitomo Electric Group to carry out initiatives to solve the variety of social issues the world is facing and improve our value as a company.
