Climate change, global warming, natural resource scarcity, spreading pollution, biodiversity destruction, rapid population growth, food and water shortages, aging populations with declining birthrates, severely lopsided wealth distribution, human rights abuses, religious and racial unrest—the world today is facing a wide variety of issues. Of course, there is no way that any one corporation could singlehandedly find solutions to all these issues. Nevertheless, the Group believes that every corporation bears a responsibility to confront such issues and to work to help find needed solutions through its corporate activities. We also believe that pursuing such activities is essential to the survival of any corporation in modern society.
The Group’s Corporate Philosophy is “Best Quality for a Better Life.” “Best Quality” is not something we insist on only when it comes to products and services. We apply the “Best Quality” standard to the development of personnel and other management resources as well as when dealing with business partners, customers and members of global and local communities. In this sense, our Corporate Philosophy expresses our commitment to pursuing “Best Quality” and contributing to sound social development. By acting on this commitment, we are working to help customers and ourselves to realize a “Better Life” and thereby helping to create a better society and environment.
The Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation (MCHC) Group, which Mitsubishi Rayon recently joined, has introduced Management of Sustainability (MOS) to aid in group management as it works toward realizing a KAITEKI. Through this management initiative, the MCHC Group is implementing specific activities with clear goals and schedules with an eye to establishing a sustainable society.
Reflecting MCHC Group, the Mitsubishi Rayon Group has also defined KAITEKI initiative promotion using MOS as a priority management issue under its New Design APTSIS 15, a five-year initiative through fiscal 2015. In line with our Corporate Philosophy, we employ MOS to clarify targets and results, and the understanding thus gained enables us to improve our activities further. In this way, we will continue to fulfill our social responsibility, thereby developing into a corporate group that helps realize a sustainable, progress toward KAITEKI.
*KAITEKI means a state of true SUSTAINABILITY , and also represents comfort for people, comfort for society, and comfort for the planet as a whole.
