Representative Corporate Executive Officer,
President & Chief Executive Officer

Manabu Chikumoto

In 2020, the Mitsubishi Chemical Group presented "KAITEKI Vision 30," an aspirational corporate vision for the year 2030, back-cast from the concept of an ideal society in the year 2050.

In just a few years since then, the world has reached a further turning point due to the transformation of economic and social systems brought about by rising geopolitical risks, rapid climate change, and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology. Under these circumstances, the chemical industry, in which we are engaged, is faced with an even greater challenge to respond to social demands such as carbon neutrality and the circular economy.

The purpose of the Mitsubishi Chemical Group is to lead with innovative solutions to achieve KAITEKI, the well-being of people and the planet. We are working to formulate a new vision for 2035, while exploring anew how we can contribute to solving various social issues and how we can enhance our corporate value.

We look forward to working with our customers, shareholders, employees, local communities, and all other stakeholders as we sincerely continue our path toward a brighter future.
