Basic Policy

Based on a product stewardship approach, the Mitsubishi Chemical (MCC) Group strives to minimize the adverse effects of its products on human health and safety and the environment. To this end, we evaluate and share information on risks related to product safety throughout product life cycles (raw materials procurement, development, manufacturing, marketing and sales, distribution, use, and disposal and recycling), working with stakeholders to proactively advance initiatives to secure the safety and wellbeing of society at all stages of the value chain.

These initiatives are in line with the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM).1 Along with process safety and disaster prevention, occupational safety and health, environmental conservation, chemical and product safety, and logistics safety, these initiatives are aimed at realizing KAITEKI through risk-based chemicals management across product life cycles.

  • 1Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM): A strategic approach to international chemicals management adopted by the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 2002.
