The ability of the Marubeni Group to fulfill its responsibilities as a member of society requires every individual within the Group to adhere to the Company Creed of “Fairness, Innovation and Harmony,” and to give CSR considerations high priority as they participate in corporate activities. We take a diligent approach to CSR activities, aiming for sound management that coexists in harmony with both society and the environment. Our goals are to ensure that the Marubeni Group is recognized by society as a good corporate citizen, and to realize sustainable growth.
Under the leadership of the CSR & Environment Committee, we are intensifying our CSR efforts pertaining to a wide range of corporate activities.
Based on our stakeholders’ expectations and concerns, and Marubeni’s impact on the environment and society, we have identified the following sustainability issues as having high materiality in line with two themes. We aim to address these material issues.
These material issues will be regularly reviewed.
Marubeni declared its support for the UN Global Compact. The compact was proposed in 1999 by then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, and formally launched in the following year. Participating corporations seek to support and practice 10 principles relating to the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. Marubeni is working to realize the ideals of the UN Global Compact by supporting these 10 principles.
Marubeni Corporation engages in activities as a Corporate Member of the Global Compact Network Japan (GCNJ), the local network of United Nations Global Compact in Japan.
Working Groups, which are organized by theme, are held mainly by the network members of Global Compact Network Japan (GCNJ). Marubeni takes part in the following Working Groups.
In order to exist in harmony and prosper alongside society and the global environment and attain sustainable growth, Marubeni believes that efforts must be made to pursue a balance among three domains in terms of value and assessment. The three domains include not only the domain of economic activities that generate profit, but also the social and environmental domains.
In order to establish a CSR policy that earns the trust and approval of stakeholders, the Marubeni Group recognizes that it is important to always listen to the opinions of stakeholders, and work with them to put these ideas into practice. Of course, all our stakeholders are equally important and therefore we do not intend to prioritize them.
