CSR in the Mitsui Chemicals Group

  • Japanese

The Mitsui Chemicals Group engages in CSR activities based on the concept of realizing its corporate mission through its main businesses. We are undertaking a diverse array of activities to be a company that is trusted and highly valued by all stakeholders and that employees can be proud of.

UN Global Compact

We signed up to the UN Global Compact in January 2008. In doing so, Mitsui Chemicals acknowledged its support and commitment to help tackle a wide range of global issues and to promote sustainable growth as a responsible corporate citizen. ISO 26000, which provides guidance on how businesses and organizations can operate in a socially responsible way, was published in 2010. In 2015, the “Transforming our world: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” was adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit. Mitsui Chemicals will help resolve many of the issues confronting the world today through its business activities while taking into consideration the 10 principles espoused under the United Nations Global Compact.
