Mitsubishi Corporation

Philosophy and Principles

Contributing to Society through Business Firmly Rooted in Principles of Integrity and Fairness

The Three Corporate Principles - Corporate Responsibility to Society; Integrity and Fairness; and Global Understanding Through Business - have served as Mitsubishi Corporation's core philosophy since the company’s inception, inspiring us to continually improve the way we address our economic, environmental, and social responsibilities around the world.

Building upon the foundation of these Three Corporate Principles, our Corporate Standards of Conduct establish the Company's expectations with regard to how business should be conducted, while the Mitsubishi Corporation Code of Conduct provides guidance to our employees worldwide based on local laws and global standards such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the ILO Core Labor Standards.

Furthermore, our Environmental Charter and Social Charter also provide further guidance in relation to our sustainable business endeavors.
