Policy

Mitsubishi Corporation (MC), believes that maintaining sustainable supply chains is fundamental to doing business globally, and has identified "Promoting Stable, Sustainable Societies and Lifestyles" as part of its Materiality. In May 2022, MC established Midterm Corporate Strategy 2024, in which MC has reaffirmed its belief that the simultaneous generation of economic, societal, and environmental value through its business is essential for the MC Group’s sustainable growth. In addition, we have identified a number of material issues for management to address in order to ensure our sustained growth as a company, with the aim of simultaneously realizing these three types of value. These issues include "Conserving and Effectively Utilizing Natural Capital" and "Promoting Stable, Sustainable Societies and Lifestyles”.

MC has established the Mitsubishi Corporation Policy for Sustainable Supply Chain Management, which outlines MC’s actions to address human rights, labor rights and environmental issues in the supply chain. This policy serves to convey MC’s fundamental perspective to all of its suppliers.

Moreover, our Corporate Standards of Conduct outline our commitment to comply with all relevant laws and international regulations and to act responsibly with respect to the highest social standards. Our Corporate Standards of Conduct further elaborate on our commitment to preserving the global environment and pursuing sustainable development through all aspects of our business activities.

Review of our Purchasing Policy

By sharing its Policy for Sustainable Supply Chain Management in the terms and conditions of its purchasing contract, MC ensures its suppliers abide by the Basic Policy. MC may ask a supplier to correct their business behavior if there is a violation of the Basic Policy, and will re-evaluate its business relationship with the relevant supplier if no correction has been made. MC will continue to work with our suppliers to ensure that environmental and social considerations are taken into account.

Animal Welfare Policy for Suppliers

Our consolidated subsidiary Cermaq has established an animal welfare policy and as well as a number of indicators to ascertain whether animal welfare is being upheld. In addition, we believe that the iFarm*1 development project will contribute to the improvement of animal welfare by enabling each individual animal to receive the minimum necessary treatment. For more information, please visit Fish health and welfare - Cermaq Global.Furthermore, Cermaq is working on the development of “Certus”*2, the semi-closed containment systems in the sea. This project will also contribute to the improvement of animal welfare. (For more information, please visit Digitalization-Technology).

*1 Using image sensing technology to monitor individual salmon in ocean pens in real time. This is expected to reduce the environmental burden, including fish stress levels and the amount of chemicals and antibiotics used.

*2 Minimize escape risk of fish and reduction of environmental load such as reduction of use of drugs and antibiotics will be expected.

Risk Management

Human rights and environmental due diligence of MC supply chain (Sustainable Supply Chain Survey)

In order to monitor their compliance with the Mitsubishi Corporation Policy for Sustainable Supply Chain Management, MC has identified products with high environmental and social risk (“products to be monitored”) in 2016 and 2020 with advice from consultants and external advisors.
MC conducts annual surveys of suppliers (Sustainable Supply Chain Survey), with a focus on those in industries where social risks including human rights and labor conditions, as well as environmental risks are considered higher.

In identifying the commodities to be surveyed, MC referred to various international supply chain management declarations and international norms such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and prioritized them in terms of the following regarding potential impact to stakeholders: 1.severity (scale, range, difficulty to make improvements) and 2.probability (situation in the relevant country/region, business field).

MC asks suppliers questions that take into account the specific issues and risks of the products handled by each supplier, with a focus on aspects including “existence of policies”, “compliance with laws and regulations”, “prevention of forced labor, child labor and discrimination towards workers”, “environmental protection” and “information disclosure”.

In addition, MC employs a system to determine suppliers that may have issues or require assistance based on the results of responses to the survey. Following this, MC considers and decides whether additional surveys or on-site inspections are necessary. Furthermore, in order to improve the convenience and accessibility of the survey for suppliers, MC have built a web-based system and conduct the surveys through this online system.

In April 2020, MC conducted its annual survey for the fiscal year ended March 2021 to 1001 supplier companies (up 236% from the previous year) in 40 countries and regions including China, Vietnam and Thailand. MC also conducted management and employee interviews and exchanged information to improve the current situation. MC has re-evaluated our business relations with relevant suppliers from the results of these surveys and interviews.

①Determine “Products to be monitored”

MC choose “products to be monitored” from all of its business products based on various international supply chain management declarations and international norms such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and prioritizes them in terms of the following regarding potential impact to stakeholders: 1.severity (scale, range, difficulty to make improvements)and 2.probability (situation in the relevant country/region, business field).  In addition, when significant environmental and social risks materialize through our business activities in the future, MC will consider investigating the target products without undergoing the above process.

②Determine target suppliers of products that have been prioritized
③Conduct questionnaire surveys for target suppliers

The number of suppliers and the details of the survey are as follows. MC also conducted visits to suppliers to confirm the status of their activities. As a result of the survey, suppliers to be visited are selected from those where certain questions on the four issues (based on the ILO Core Labor Standards, etc.), are determined to have been answered insufficiently, or where best practices have been implemented.

Communication/Engagement with Suppliers

New Suppliers

For new suppliers, the Sustainable Supply Chain Management Guideline is published and shared on our website. The terms and conditions in our sales and purchase agreements ensure that our suppliers comply with the Guidelines. In cases such as when a supplier violates the Guidelines, MC can request the supplier to take corrective measures, and if such measures are not taken, the contract can be terminated. In addition, MC also conduct the Sustainable Supply Chain Survey in order to better understand the status of compliance with the Guidelines.

サステナビリティ・CSR部 サステナビリティ企画チーム(PQ-C)

Existing Suppliers

Together with periodically receiving confirmation of support for the Mitsubishi Corporation Policy for Sustainable Supply Chain Management, MC conducts regular surveys of suppliers to continuously monitor the status of their compliance with this policy and to strengthen communication with suppliers. Furthermore, MC visits suppliers to confirm the status of their activities when it determines that site visits are necessary based on the regions where suppliers are active and their business activities. MC continuously monitors existing suppliers to identify those that pose a high degree of environmental and social risk in line with this policy, for the purpose of verifying the appropriateness of current initiatives. Going forward, MC will incorporate the results of this reevaluation process into its regular assessments of suppliers, with the goal of ensuring the effectiveness of the supplier surveys.

In the fiscal year ended March 2022, MC conducted an online meeting and interview with the management team and employees of Fisheries Cooperative Association of Mitsushima-cho, a supplier of tuna (located in Nagasaki Prefecture, Tsushima City) to one of MC’s subsidiary companies, Toyo Reizo.

* This meeting and interview were conducted online due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In the meeting, in addition to the external environment related to sustainability, we also explained our sustainability initiatives (our basic stance on human rights and our efforts to identify and address sustainable supply chains as one of our key management issues). The meeting provided an opportunity to deepen their understanding of sustainability and our company's initiatives importance.

In the online interview, MC learned that the company is engaged in activities that lead to sustainable fishing such as collecting debris from the ocean, that there have been no human rights violations or other problems due to its efforts to create an open work environment, and that employees engaged in work that involves occupational health and safety concerns are not only provided with appropriate training, but that their personnel assignments are made such that workloads are not unevenly distributed.

Through the interview, MC confirmed that the company’s internal policies on environmental and social considerations mentioned above were not clearly documented in writing. MC therefore requested that these policies be clarified in order to ensure thorough awareness of the policies and to deepen efforts related to sustainability initiatives.
Working in partnership with suppliers, MC will continue to promote sustainable operations throughout its supply chains.

In the event that MC confirms, through additional surveys or on-site inspections, points that should be corrected or improved in relation to the Policy, in addition to requesting the relevant supplier to take corrective measures, MC also provides guidance and assistance as necessary. If MC determines that a resolution is unlikely even after providing continuous guidance and assistance, MC will review its business relationship with the relevant supplier.

Together with periodically receiving confirmation of support for the Mitsubishi Corporation Policy for Sustainable Supply Chain Management, MC conducts regular surveys of suppliers to continuously monitor the status of their compliance with this policy and to strengthen communication with suppliers. Furthermore, MC visits suppliers to confirm the status of their activities when it determines that site visits are necessary based on the regions where suppliers are active and their business activities. MC continuously monitors existing suppliers to identify those that pose a high degree of environmental and social risk in line with this policy, for the purpose of verifying the appropriateness of current initiatives. Going forward, MC will incorporate the results of this reevaluation process into its regular assessments of suppliers, with the goal of ensuring the effectiveness of the supplier surveys.

④Review of initiatives for the current fiscal year and policy planning for the next fiscal year

After reviewing results of human rights and environmental due diligence for the current fiscal year, MC discuss with its internal and external stakeholders such as the Sustainability Advisory Committee, Group Chief Sustainability Officers and Group Sustainability Managers in each Business Group. Based on these discussions, the Sustainability & CSR Committee will deliberate policy for the next fiscal year and put forward or report items to the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors.
In addition, MC is considering reviewing our supply chain management policies as needed based on the status of dialogue with our stakeholders. Communication with suppliers about human rights and environmental due diligence in our supply chain has been an opportunity for suppliers to deepen their understanding of our sustainability approach, and MC will continue to actively and continuously work to improve its practices.

Response to Conflict Mineral Issues

The U.S. Financial Regulatory Reform Act (Dodd-Frank Act), enacted in July 2010, requires U.S. listed companies to disclose whether conflict minerals used in their products are produced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and neighboring countries where conflict-prone and reported inhumane acts are reported.
Although MC is not a U.S. listed company and is not directly subject to reporting and disclosure under the Act, MC confirm that MC have established policies and guidelines on the procurement of conflict minerals for our suppliers of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold to fulfill our social responsibilities in our corporate activities, and that the products supplied are not a source of funding for armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or its neighboring countries. MC also aim to take every measure not to be complicit in human rights violations and conflicts by armed groups.

* "Conflict Minerals" as defined by the law refer to tantalum, tin, gold, tungsten and other specified minerals.

Cermaq expects its suppliers to request similar standards for their suppliers and subcontractors. Cermaq expects all its suppliers to comply with requirements in the areas of national legislation, human rights, labor rights, health and safety, anti-corruption, the environment, food quality and safety, management systems, and implementation. In the area of the environment, adverse impact from the operations of the supplier on the community, the environment, and natural resources are expected to be minimized while safeguarding the health and safety of the public. Adverse impact may include pollution, use of limited resources, deforestation, release of chemicals and other materials to the ground, sea or air and which pose a hazard if released into the environment. To minimize the risk, including reducing chemical use in fish farming, suppliers are expected to identify, monitor and control the environmental impact of their operations.

Olam

Olam International Limited (Olam), an MC affiliate company, is upholding its corporate philosophy of “Re-imagining Global Agriculture & Food Systems” to define its business growth as being achievable only through providing sufficient value to the environment and society. MC strives for three outcomes: Prosperous Farmers and Food Systems, Thriving Communities, and Re-Generation of The Living World. Olam has selected 10 material areas for achieving these goals and is approaching them by building a framework to achieve impact around 14 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For example, MC has developed the Olam Farmer Information System (OFIS) in partnership with farmers. This service collects and analyzes data from small-holder farmers, such as amounts of fertilizers and agrochemicals applied, unit crop yields and agricultural training records, aiming to help farmers improve their yields. In addition, in 2018, MC launched AtSource, a digital platform that directly connects customers with suppliers to offer comprehensive sustainable solutions. This platform has grown to include 20 products and 300,000 small-holder farmers in 30 countries worldwide. With AtSource, more than 150 customers are able to access not only supplier profiles, but also a total of approximately 350 indicators, including environmental data such as amounts of CO₂ emissions linked with purchased raw materials as well as social indicators such as farming yields. It also helps customers organize sustainability projects focused on specific areas. With AtSource, Olam is providing value to in three ways: 1) information on society, the environment and traceability; 2) transparency through real-time monitoring; and 3) positive impacts on farmer livelihoods and the global environment. Moreover, the platform won the 2020 Reuters Responsible Supply Chain Award.

Using nearly 30 years of product expertise, including the above-mentioned tools, Olam has adopted mid- to long-term environmental and social objectives in accordance with each of the SDGs, and have also announced Cocoa Compass in 2019, Coffee LENS in 2020 and Cashew Trail, Hazelnut Trail, and Milk Matters in 2021.

Olam has received a number of awards in recognition of these efforts, including  from Fortune Magazine’s Change the World 2016 corporate rankings. Olam’s Founder and Group CEO, Sunny Verghese is the current chairman of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), which further demonstrates the global acclaim accorded to Olam for its sustainability efforts.

In regard to individual products, in 2021, the company’s cocoa business in the UK won the Business Green Leader Awards for “Nature-Based Project of the Year.” In addition, AtSource was recognized by the Global Coffee Platform (one of the industry’s largest organizations which sets the framework for sustainability in the coffee supply chain, and includes many  companies from the countries of production and consumption) as one of the organization’s official standards. As can be seen from these examples, Olam has received high praise from externalorganizations. For details of each initiative, please refer to the following company website.
