205-1Operations assessed for risks related to corruptionBribery Prevention
Introducing the Mitsui Chemicals Group Risk Management System, we take steps to analyze and address risks. Relevant departments verify risks in accordance with the basic principles of the UN Global Compact. From a corruption prevention perspective, the primary screening of 17 countries was undertaken based on the information of Transparency International. It was determined that risks may exist for seven of the 17 countries. Plans are in place to collect information in the future.

6.6.3
205-2Communication and training about anti-corruption policies and proceduresThoroughly adhering to the Mitsui Chemicals Group Action Guidelines, we publicize the details of these guidelines internally in the Compliance Guidebook as well as raise awareness of these through various means that include holding workplace discussions, putting up posters, and conducting e-learning programs. The Compliance Guidebook contains a commitment by the president and promotes understanding of corruption prevention, including specific examples of unhealthy relationships with government officials focusing on entertaining and bribery.
Regarding M&A and selecting new business partners, the Company not only complies with business-related laws but also hires consultants and legal advisors to conduct investigations based on its status as a signatory to the UN Global Compact. We also examine M&A based on legal due diligence in accordance with each country’s legal regulations.
In light of the high risk of fraud (including various permits and licenses) related to operating manufacturing facilities in emerging countries, Mitsui Chemicals’ Internal Control Division in particular conducts audits covering all aspects of business operations. The Company provides advice and receives reports via risk hotlines available in the languages of each country as well as raises awareness of these hotlines.
