Management CommitmentJAPANESE

The increasing severity of various environmental and social problems that exist today on a global scale, such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, and increases in poverty and health hazards, has meant that companies are called upon to play an increasingly important role in building a sustainable society.
Through vigorous CSR activities, Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Group aims at both the creation of social value and the achievement of growth in our corporate value.
We have coined the word “Eco-Trustution” for our CSR activities, which contribute to finding solutions to environmental (“eco”) problems through the use of our trust function; specifically, we are engaged in such efforts as project financing for renewable energy-related businesses, development of loans to encourage the installation of solar power generation systems, and consulting services to support customers in enhancing the environmental added value of their real estate property.

In our efforts to respond to social problems, we endeavor to support a comfortable, long-lived society by offering a range of products and services to assist with inheritance and business succession. In addition, we have launched “Special Interest Rate Housing Loan” and “Loans to Support Disaster Recovery” for clients affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, and a social contribution donation trust for the purpose of donating to organizations engaged in activities that contribute to society. Many customers have taken advantage of these various services.

At Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Group, we will pursue solutions to environmental and social problems, making it our ongoing goal to contribute to the formation of a sustainable society through the establishment of a new business model that integrates the diverse functions unique to a trust bank group, while developing and providing innovative products and services. We look forward to your continuing support and cooperation.
