The 2025 Long-term Business Plan embodies our strong commitment toward realizing sustainable growth and development along with society. We will make every effort to contribute to solving social challenges through our business activities and engage in management that not only emphasizes “economic concerns,” but also strikes a proper balance with the environment and society.

2025 Long-term Business Plan

In formulating the 2025 Long-term Business Plan, we clarified our view of a targeted future society while revisiting our Corporate Mission and Corporate Target. This was after taking into consideration the requirements of society and other factors including mega trends and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Based on this, the Mitsui Chemicals Group has identified three environmental and social targets under its 2025 Long-term Business Plan after giving due consideration to its contribution to and impact on society through its business activities.
In addition, the Group took steps to reconsider key issues (materiality) when putting in place its 2025 Long-term Business Plan. Recognizing that efforts to promote key issues (materiality) will better allow us to resolve social challenges and achieve the targets set out under the 2025 Long-term Business Plan, we will continue to pursue key issues (materiality).
Going forward, we will continue to confirm the expectations of society and issues associated with SDGs, and will work to make meaningful progress toward our 2025 Long-term Business Plan.
