Mitsui & Co.’s Materiality

Identification and Review of Materiality

In 2015, Mitsui & Co. identified its Materiality, which consists of five key material issues in areas that are important for our stakeholders and have significant implications for our business management. As the importance of sustainability has been growing globally as expressed in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and megatrends with the potential to impact on our business activities are changing rapidly, we have reviewed our Materiality and identified five new material issues in April 2019.

Mitsui & Co.’s Materiality

Mitsui & Co. prioritizes and focuses on sustainability in its corporate management. We have identified Mitsui’s material issues (“Materiality”) for the company to focus on, with the aim of meeting the expectations and trust of a variety of stakeholders and contributing to the creation of a future where the aspirations of the people can be fulfilled, as set out in our corporate mission. In April 2019, we identified new Mitsui & Co. Materiality, in which we recognize societal issues related to our business activities in each material issue category, verify significant risks and opportunities for Mitsui in terms of the impact of societal issues, and disclose our approach toward each material issue.

We explain the themes set out under each material issue of Mitsui’s Materiality, and how we have linked these to the SDGs, to focus our efforts on tackling the SDGs’ 17 goals and 169 targets.
