The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact

In 2004 MHI became a signatory to the UN Global Compact. In addition to carrying out its Ten Principles on human rights, labour, the environment, and prevention of corruption, in 2015 we formulated the “MHI Group Global Code of Conduct” indicating rules of behavior for all MHI Group employees to follow. Going forward, we will continue to conduct our business activities with sincerity and high ethical standards appropriate to a global company.
