Sustainability at Mitsui & Co.

Mitsui & Co.’s Materiality

Mitsui & Co.'s Materiality

Mitsui & Co. prioritizes and focuses on sustainability in its corporate management. We have identified Mitsui's material issues (“materiality”) for the company to focus on, with the aim of meeting the expectations of a variety of stakeholders and contributing to the creation of a future where the aspirations of the people can be fulfilled, as set out in our corporate mission.

We recognize the identified Mitsui's materiality as societal issues relevant to all of our business activities. We assess the risks and opportunities that arise from the effects of these issues and disclose our approach to each of them.

Furthermore, so as to focus our efforts especially on related goals and targets, Mitsui has linked our materiality with the 17 goals and 169 targets of the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) and also disclosed our initiatives.


Identification and Review for Materiality

Identification Processes on Materiality

In March 2015, Mitsui defined five Material Issues for the company as the important management indices. In the specifying process, we identified various issues with respect to international frameworks, such as ISO 26000, and GRI Guidelines, and narrowed downed the materiality for stakeholders based on our dialogue with business associates, NPOs & NGOs, experts, and other stakeholders.

To ensure compatibility between the identified materiality and key corporate priority measures and strategies for each business domain, we carried out deliberations at the CSR Promotion Officer's meeting (current Sustainability Promotion Officer's meeting) and CSR Promotion Committee (current Sustainability Committee) and asked external experts to verify the adequacy, in order to define the key priority issues. Then, the identified material issues were approved by the Corporate Management Committee and the Board of Directors and were shared with all officers and employees.

At the same time, as a management approach in line with the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines, we define specific themes to work on each material issue, and clearly indicate relevant policies and set targets accordingly. Through this approach, we strive to implement measures to address issues by identifying material aspects and boundaries as indicated by the G4 Guidelines.

Review Process on Materiality

Each aspect of the materiality and the relevant themes to be addressed will be periodically reviewed in order to meet the changing needs and expectations of society and to reflect them in our Medium–term Management Plan and take into account those changes impacting the economy, environment, and society in our sustainable management.

As the basis for the periodical review, we have adopted the international initiatives that are stipulated in the diagram below:

  • United Nations Global Compact
  • Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises
  • Universal Declaration of Human Rights
  • ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work
  • Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
  • ISO26000
  • GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines

Identification and Review Processes for Material Issues


Protection of the Global Environment

Protection of the Global Environment

Recognition of societal issues

As a corporation that operates across countries and regions around the world, we recognize the importance of giving consideration to impacts on the global environment.

  • Global warming, climate change
  • Loss of biodiversity
  • Energy and water shortage
  • Environmental pollution

Main risks and opportunities

Risks

Negative impact on business activities brought about by climate change and resource constraints, such as water shortage and higher environmental costs resulting from ecosystem destruction, degradation, etc., as a consequence of business activities.

Opportunities

Expansion of environment–related markets due to increased environmental awareness and the tightening of regulations, and expansion of business domains as a result of energy diversification.

 

Mitsui's Approach

We rigorously comply with environment–related laws, regulations, and treaties. We strive to prevent environmental pollution and curb greenhouse gas emissions, to adapt to climate change, and to maintain biodiversity. We are alert to environmental impacts and work to mitigate those impacts. We use our integrated strengths and work in cooperation with our partners to achieve rational, long–term industrial solutions to environmental problems. We systematically provide grants, through the Mitsui & Co. Environment Fund, for university research and NPO/NGO activities that contribute to the solution of environmental problems, efficient resource utilization, protection of ecosystems, and harmonious coexistence between ecosystems and human beings.

Protection of the Global Environment


Respect for Human Rights

Respect for Human Rights

Recognition of societal issues

As a company with a diverse range of value chains in many countries and regions, we regard respect for human rights, including those of business associates and consumers, based on international standards as the foundation of sustainability management.

  • Greater responsibility for human rights in the supply chain (labor practices, impact on local residents, etc.)
  • Consideration for indigenous people in conjunction with resources development
  • Illicit use of personal information that may be obtained via the increasingly widespread use of Internet and digital communications technology

Main risks and opportunities

Risks

Disputes or protests concerning human rights issues in every spectrum of business that could hinder the start–up or continuation of business, and leakage of information held by the company that could be used to identify individuals

Opportunities

Strengthening of the ability to ensure stable supply through consideration for human rights across all supply chains.

 

Mitsui's Approach

Being aware of our role as a member of the international community, we work to understand the culture, traditions, and practices of each country and region in which we operate. We are working to ensure there is no discrimination based on race, belief, gender, social status, religion, nationality, age, or mental or physical abilities, and take action to rectify labor practices that violate human rights. We are committed to the eradication of forced labor and child labor. We do not condone any form of child labor and are committed to following minimum working age laws wherever we operate. We are committed to complying with laws concerning slavery and human trafficking wherever we operate. Acknowledging that our responsibility extends beyond legal compliance within our own operations, we also work to ensure that human rights are respected in the supply chain. We are also contributing to the development of a society in which human rights are respected, by preventing the illicit use of personal information through implementation of countermeasures against increasingly sophisticated and devious cyber attacks and the resulting risk of the leaking of information that could be used to identify individuals.

Stable Supply of Resources & Materials

Stable Supply of Resources & Materials

Recognition of societal issues

The establishment of supply sources for resources, such as energy, metals, water, food resources, chemicals, and materials, as well as the stable supply of these resources and materials have become important social priorities because of demand expansion driven by population growth and the desire for a better standard of living, especially in emerging countries.

  • Population increase and expansion of demand for resources and materials
