Stakeholder Engagement

Mitsubishi Estate Group's Relationships with Stakeholders

The Mitsubishi Estate Group's business is built upon the foundation of its relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders, including customers, shareholders, local communities, government and local authorities, business partners, and executives and employees and their family members.
Business activities in urban development involve many stakeholders by their very nature, and the Mitsubishi Estate Group has the responsibility to pursue its business activities while living up to the trust placed in it by these stakeholders.
In particular, the Group's business entails close involvement with the tenants of its buildings and the stakeholders in the local community as partners in building a sustainable community. In the Marunouchi area, the Group prioritizes interactive communication on a daily basis through the Council for Area Development and Management of Otemachi, Marunouchi and Yurakucho.
Two of the general principles of Japan's Corporate Governance Code, which was issued by the Tokyo Stock Exchange, are “appropriate cooperation with stakeholders other than shareholders” and “dialogue with shareholders.” The Group will take a range of initiatives to communicate with stakeholders in various forms and reflect their opinions in management.
