In January 2005, we established a CSR Committee, chaired by the President, and a dedicated CSR Department. In recognition of the need to address CSR throughout the Group, we also assign responsibility for CSR to the heads of each of our in-house divisions and group companies, and appoint CSR Managers and CSR Supervisors lower down in each organization to oversee groupwide CSR activities.
The CSR Committee, which is run by the CSR Department, meets four times a year in order to discuss policies relating to CSR activities in general and planned activities for the current fiscal year. The committee also receives and reviews reports relating to CSR in general, covering areas such as compliance throughout the Mitsubishi Materials Group, reports submitted to the Internal Contact Office, and progress with risk management. In addition to the aforementioned promotion framework, we also have systems in place so that any compliance issues occurring within the Group are reported to the CSR Department by the in-house company or organization responsible for the relevant facility or group company. The CSR Department then coordinates with other related departments to investigate the causes of the issue, implement measures to prevent a recurrence and take any other appropriate action. All aspects of CSR at Mitsubishi Materials and other group companies are also monitored via internal audits conducted by our Internal Audit Department, and via joint audits.
