Philosophy and Principles

As a 100% subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, we engage in fair, sound business practices based on our Philosophy and Principles—including the Three Corporate Principles ("Sankoryo") that have served as the corporate Credo of Mitsubishi Corporation since its founding. To realize our Philosophy and Principles, we have established Corporate Action Guidelines to guide our corporate conduct, and a Code of Conduct for Corporate Officers which sets forth rules to be followed by every employee.

The RtMJ Values and Action Guidelines

As a member of the Mitsubishi Corporation Group, our activities are guided by the Three Corporate Principles of Mitsubishi Corporation, which we have adopted as our corporate credo.

Three Corporate Principles

The Three Corporate Principles (“Sankoryo”) of the Mitsubishi Group were formulated in 1934 as Action Guidelines of the former Mitsubishi Trading Company, based on the 1920 teachings of Koyata Iwasaki, the fourth President of Mitsubishi. The same spirit and values remain alive today, having been passed down through a history of more than 150 years, and guide the activities of the Mitsubishi Group.
