In accordance with the spirit grounded in “Fairness, Innovation, and Harmony,” the Marubeni Group is proudly committed to social and economic development and safeguarding the global environment by conducting fair and upright corporate activities.
Marubeni Corporation, as a business enterprise, will actively pursue its business interests through the exercise of fair and lawful competition. As a company, Marubeni will also continue to play its part in the growth of the global economy, while always striving to enrich the society within which it operates. In order to achieve these goals, Marubeni is committed to the following six basic principles of business:
Marubeni seeks to steadily increase and maximize corporate value through business activities that are in accordance with its Company Creed and Management Philosophy, and to steadily and continuously build and expand the entire Group's business foundation. To this end, Marubeni has established internal control systems, which serve as a rational process to ensure improvement of efficiency of business operations, accurate financial reporting to stakeholders, compliance with applicable laws and regulations, safeguarding of assets, and appropriateness of corporate activities. The Company regularly reviews this internal control system policy based on its structure and operation status to respond to changes in social conditions and the business environment.
In accordance with the Companies Act and its implementation guidelines, Marubeni has established a basic internal control policy which helps to ensure that all business activities are conducted appropriately. Each year, the Company confirms the content and implementation of this policy, and implements improvements when necessary. With regard to the internal control report system mandated under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, the Internal Control Committee conducts evaluations as stipulated in the practical standards. As in the year ended March 31, 2015, we again submitted our internal control report for the year ended March 31, 2016, which concluded that “internal control is effective.”
