Recognition of Issues and Basic Approach

The Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group is vigorously pushing ahead with the globalization of its business activities to drive sustainable growth together with stakeholders worldwide. Notably, the Group handles numerous types of materials that are used in infrastructure that underpins social prosperity. For this reason, the Group's business activities and supply chains now extend beyond developed countries to certain emerging countries and regions where legal systems are still being developed. The Mitsubishi Chemicals Holdings Group is determined to conduct fair business practices in any country or region around the world. To this end, guided by its basic regulations, the Group is working to implement bribery prevention measures and measures against anti-social forces, along with conducting awareness-raising and training activities to enhance knowledge of antitrust laws and other rules, and establishing standards and rules to maintain fairness. The Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group also recognizes that one of our corporate social responsibilities is to return profits from business successes to local societies in the form of taxes. As such, we make our tax payments in keeping with the spirit and letter of local legislation and a desire to contribute to local societies in all areas where we have operations.
