CSR Definition and CSR Direction

We have set out our own CSR Definition and CSR Direction so that we can put our corporate philosophy into practice, which is our ultimate goal as a group.
We aim to contribute to the sustainable development of society, whilst at the same time meeting the needs of our stakeholders.

CSR Definition

The Mitsubishi Materials Group is an ensemble of companies operating under the composite profile of a comprehensive basic materials maker. As a group, we provide resources, basic materials and energy indispensable to modern lifestyles, and in these efforts, we adhere to a corporate philosophy that emphasizes efforts that contribute to people, society and the Earth.
CSR for the Group thus hinges on making this philosophy a reality, through the sincere fulfillment of the obligations and expected role that society places on a corporate citizen, disclosure of the approaches taken--with proper explanation--and the constant pursuit of two-way communication with stakeholders to promote greater mutual understanding.
These actions will underpin a position of trust in society.

CSR Direction

(1) Respecting relationships with people: Reinforcing ties to stakeholders
Through mutual communications, plants and companies under the Group umbrella will go to great lengths to maintain favorable perceptions of the Group -- as held by shareholders, customers, suppliers, employees and other stakeholders -- deepen their understanding of stakeholder points of view, and work hard to ensure a high level of stakeholder satisfaction.
(2) Respecting promises made to society: Ensuring thorough compliance and risk management practices
We will systematically reinforce levels of compliance and risk management to ensure legal compliance -- a vital prerequisite for expanding corporate activities -- and to prevent business-related problems from arising.
(3) Respecting the Earth: Reducing environmental impact
In our activities, which serve to reduce environmental impact, we will direct efforts toward such measures as saving energy and resources, cutting waste and limiting the use of hazardous substances.
