We’re committed to sustainable development

For us, sustainability is woven into our company mission and underpins our corporate vision for the future.

Our KAITEKI philosophy

Everything we do as a company, as a partner and as an industry leader is guided by the principles of KAITEKI - the vision of our holding company Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation (MCHC).

“The sustainable wellbeing of people, society and our planet Earth” - KAITEKI

More than ever before, we believe achieving excellence means taking decisive action in the present to lay the groundwork for an equally beneficial future. Realizing KAITEKI means achieving a balance between the environment, society, technology and business needs. It relates directly to sustainable development, meaning we’re meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.

It is this commitment that drives us to fully focus on addressing social and environmental demands, while also creating new and sustainable value for our stakeholders.

THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY Closing the loop on sustainability


We avoid and reduce waste across our sites through optimized manufacturing and continuous innovations made possible by advanced materials and technologies. Our high-performance, lightweight material formulations also help reduce manufacturing footprints and improve fuel economy, energy use and longevity in diverse applications from aviation to robotics.


As part of our commitment to the circular economy, we collect much of our manufacturing and processing scrap for immediate reuse. This enables us to further reduce waste throughout our manufacturing and processing operations.


Wherever possible, we sort our own manufacturing waste and recycle it back into high-value products both internally and externally. We’ve also implemented production processes which allow us to collect our customers’ scrap, waste or unused products and recycle these without downcycling.

OUR RESULTS Making progress possible

Our key priorities are to reduce the overall amount of energy used, while increasing the efficiency of the energy we do need, reducing GHG emissions.

Globally, 21 out of 40 sites already procure their electricity from renewable sources. In addition, five of these sites also offset their remaining emissions.
