Signatory to the UN Global Compact

Signatory to the 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 challenges and to promote sustainable growth as a responsible corporate citizen. ISO 26000 was published in 2010. In 2015, the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit identified specific sustainable development goals (SDGs).
In addition, Mitsui Chemicals participates in each of the subcommittees of the UN Global Compact Network Japan and is working to gather information. In fiscal 2016, the Company participated in each of the human rights education, reporting research, WEPs, supply chain, anti-corruption, and SDGs subcommittees.
The Mitsui Chemicals Group will help resolve many of the challenges confronting the world today through its business activities while taking into consideration the 10 principles espoused under the United Nations Global Compact.

WEPs: The Women's Empowerment Principles are a set of principles for business offering guidance on how to empower women in the workplace, marketplace, and community.
