Sustainability at Mitsui & Co. and the Management Framework
Sustainability has always been an integral part of Mitsui & Co.’s basic philosophy and today, it is clearly defined in our Mission, Vision, Values ("MVV"), adopted in May 2020. Our corporate mission is to “build brighter futures, everywhere”. Toward the realization of a brighter tomorrow for earth and for people around the world, we, as challengers and innovators, aim to be a corporate group that creates and grows business while addressing material issues for sustainable development.
With the Sustainable Committee playing a central role, Mitsui promotes sustainability-related activities based on cross-organizational collaboration to meet the needs and expectations of society in relation to companies’ social values and initiatives.
Each of Mitsui’s employees and officers is endeavoring to acquire a firm understanding of what society expects from and requires of Mitsui. Based on this understanding, we strive to respond to changes in market environments, and constantly evolve to create new value through our business activities by exercising our unique capabilities, and thereby contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
We are involved in a wide range of initiatives, both in Japan and overseas, aimed at the realization of a sustainable society.
