Working in Harmony with Local Communities

At each of its business sites, the Mitsui Chemicals Group believes that relationships of trust, based on close-knit relations with everyone in the local area, are crucial to the normal and stable operation of its businesses. The Group thus provides opportunities for communication with everyone in the vicinity of its facilities.

Local Communication at Each Business Site

At each of our business sites, we invite local residents living in the vicinity to opinion exchange meetings and tours of our facilities. At the opinion exchange meetings, we provide an overview of the works and showcase our efforts to protect the environment, safety initiatives and activities designed to contribute to society. Lively discussions have ensued from residents living in the vicinity of our facilities speaking about their day-to-day feelings and any requests they had. We would like to reflect everyone’s opinions and requests in the management of our business sites.
We are working to further deepen mutual understanding by holding events and actively taking part in local events.
