Doing Our Part for Society, Future Generations and the Global Environment

MC's commitment to contributing to building prosperous, sustainable societies in the places where we operate worldwide is deeply embedded in our corporate culture based on our corporate philosophy, the Three Corporate Principles. MC established an office to oversee social and environmental affairs in 1973 in recognition that, as good corporate citizens, companies should actively pursue initiatives to contribute to society, and that the expense of those activities should be borne as part of the social cost of doing business before reaping any profits. Since then, MC has promoted a number of self-driven corporate philanthropy projects with the aim of bettering our global society.
