Collaboration between Mitsubishi Corporation and UBS AG

Our Sustainability Committee keeps in close communication with our sponsor, Mitsubishi Corporation. Starting with the adoption of a sustainability strategy based on Mitsubishi’s Three Principles, this communication has led to the sharing of know-how and examples of successful initiatives between the Company and Mitsubishi. In addition, examples of our Green Buildings were showcased in Mitsubishi’s ESG Data Book 2018, issued in December 2018.
Meanwhile, our other sponsor, UBS AG, is engaging in advanced ESG activities on a global scale. By having employees seconded to the Company from UBS participate in our Sustainability Committee, we are able to learn about examples of global initiatives and acquire relevant knowledge, which we then leverage within our own sustainability activities. Furthermore, we mutually share know-how and expertise with UBS, and examples of the MCUBS’s initiatives have been introduced as best practices in the CSR reports published by UBS.
