The Three Corporate Principles - Corporate Responsibility to Society, Integrity and Fairness and Global Understanding Through Business were formulated in 1934 based on the teachings of Koyata Iwasaki, the fourth president of Mitsubishi. Entering into a new era of the 21st century, these guiding philosophies have grown to encompass a wider scope in its original meaning through the evolution and expansion of our activities from trading to new business investments.
Building upon the foundation of these Three Corporate Principles, our Corporate Standards of Conduct establishes 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.
Our Environmental Charter, established in 1996, provides further guidance in relation to our sustainable business endeavors.
We respect and protect personal data. Our Personal Data Protection Website Policy, which applies to the companies listed in the Policy, sets out the basis upon which any personal data we collect will be used, stored, transferred or processed by us.
