This page describes our corporate governance and here you can find related reports and internal rule.
We are making efforts to enhance our corporate governance framework and develop and improve our internal controls on a global group basis, to make sure that Mitsui & Co. is a company that is trusted by society.
We recognize that ensuring thorough compliance with respect to internal controls is a particularly important issue.
In terms of strengthening corporate governance, Mitsui & Co. worked to improve diversity among members of the Board of Directors. At the same time, an even greater number of discussions were held at Board of Directors' meetings regarding Mitsui & Co.'s future direction and business strategies. In these ways, Mitsui & Co. has been moving forward with efforts to enhance the effectiveness of the Board of Directors.
Mitsui & Co. considers a sound reputation to be the foundation of business, and recognizes that compliance is the prerequisite for maintaining our reputation and trust from society.
In order for the Mitsui & Co. global group to become a truly trustworthy corporate group for society, we make serious efforts to heighten awareness among all officers and employees of the importance of upholding "Integrity" and to build a global-group compliance framework. "Integrity" here means more than compliance with laws, regulations and rules, and it refers to an employee's ability to act honestly and ethically with a high degree of dignity and respectability, to use good judgment in connection with his/her business activities, and to behave with common courtesy and in accordance with business ethics and social norms.
We identify company-wide material risks across organizational boundaries and implement a wide range of initiatives to hedge and control risks.
