Through its CSR activities, Marubeni aims to build a better relationship with society, based on coexistence, and to become an organization trusted by all stakeholders.
In the field of social contribution, Marubeni recognized the need to take responsibility for creating bonds with society, and contributing, in particular, to the needs of local communities. To this end, we formulated the Basic Policy on Social Contribution Activities in January 2006.
Marubeni also set up a Volunteer Promotion Team to heighten awareness of social contribution through volunteer activities, and deepen the understanding of Marubeni as a good corporate citizen. The team works with NGOs and NPOs, and plans and manages volunteer activities with employee participation. In tandem, the Company has also introduced the Volunteer Leave System (five days per year) to support employees who wish to participate in volunteer activities.
In the spirit of “Fairness, Innovation, and Harmony,” and being aware of our responsibility as a corporate citizen in the global community, we will actively pursue social contribution activities.
From a universal perspective, we will adopt the following five priority areas: social welfare, international exchange, community contribution, global environment, and cultural support. We will also actively promote social contribution activities as a corporation, and support volunteer activities conducted by our executives and employees.
Based on the Basic Principle and the Basic Policy for Activities, we have established the following specific policies, and are engaged in social contribution activities across the entire Marubeni Group.
