Mitsui & Co.'s Value Creation

Mitsui & Co.'s Value Creation

Companies can only be sustainable if the societies they operate in are sustainable, and unsustainable companies cannot fulfill their social responsibilities. At Mitsui & Co., we try to anticipate changes in society with each era. We reflect on how we should advance our capabilities and ceaselessly challenge ourselves to express our potential in ways that bring the most benefit to society.

We believe that we must continually improve the way we engage with environmental and societal issues, listen closely to our stakeholders, and ensure that we have a clear understanding of key concerns, issues, and expectations. It is then our responsibility to contribute to addressing issues and meeting expectations in the most effective way possible.

We continue to ensure that all of our employees share our management philosophy, as expressed in our Mission, Vision, and Values, and to strengthen our robust management platform, including our governance and risk management systems. At the same time, working alongside our stakeholders, our aim is to pursue business in a manner expressed in our "360° business innovation." slogan. In doing so, we place a strong focus on five material issues of Mitsui's new Materiality, which we have revised in April 2019 as important management priorities in achieving a sustainable development of society and Mitsui. The newly identified material issues are: "Secure sustainable supply of essential products," "Enhance quality of life," "Create an eco-friendly society," "Develop talent leading to value creation," and "Build an organization with integrity."

The slogan noted above and our Materiality reflect the fact that one of our greatest strengths is our ability to connect ideas, information, customers, and business partners to create new value around the world so as to strive to contribute to the creation of a future where the aspirations of the people can be fulfilled. This is what Mitsui is expected to do and how Mitsui strives to create new value in pursuit of social sustainability.
