At the same time, Mitsubishi Estate believes that the promotion of CSR activities will directly lead to the improvement of its corporate brand. All Group employees share the Mitsubishi Estate Group Code of Corporate Conduct as ethical guidelines to achieve the mission.

The United Nations Global Compact

Mitsubishi Estate has signed the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) advocated by the United Nations and was registered as a participating company on April 19.
The UNGC is a voluntary initiative under which each company and group demonstrate responsible and creative leadership to act as good members of society and achieve sustainable growth. Since it was proposed by then-UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in 1999, more than 13,000 companies and groups around the world have joined.
In line with the Ten Principles of the UNGC in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, Mitsubishi Estate will continue to contribute to the development of a sustainable world by establishing targets and policies suited to its business and pursuing them using the PDCA management cycle.

CSR Case Studies

Compliance

Mitsubishi Estate considers compliance as not simply the adherence to legal standards, but as meeting the expectations of people in society at large, not to mention the adherence to internal company rules and ethical corporate standards. Furthermore, because we recognize how essential compliance is to the profit base of the Company, we view the maintenance of a compliance system as a priority task of management. Moreover, all Group employees are deepening their awareness of compliance issues while proactively promoting compliance-focused activities.

Environmental Management

The Mitsubishi Estate Group has clarified its commitment to proactively contribute to societal efforts aiming to reduce its environmental impact.
Under its Environmental Slogan, "For Sustainable Cities, For the Sustainable Earth,"Mitsubishi Estate is leading sustainable urban development that gives due consideration to such environmental aspects as biodiversity by aggressively implementing initiatives toward realizing a low-carbon, recycling-oriented society in partnership with its customers. Specifically, we are implementing various initiatives to reduce the environmental impact in general in the Otemachi, Marunouchi and Yurakucho areas through public-private collaboration.
Actual initiatives are categorized into those with direct or indirect results. Initiatives with direct results include the introduction of high-efficiency air-conditioning systems and "dry mist" generators as well as the arrangement of roof-top and external-wall greenery on our properties. In fact, the Shin-Marunouchi Building has started the use of 100% renewable, "fresh green electricity. " Also, in the Residential Business, we are actively promoting the development of the ecofriendly "soleco" system, which combines a solar power generation system and a central high-voltage power transmission system. On the other hand, initiatives with indirect results involve the staging of environment-related events and seminars, which are aimed at promoting environmental awareness and the dissemination of environmental information.
