Third, a corporate sustainability division will be established to promote the integration of ESG (environment, social, and governance) elements with business strategies. The company states that the new division will also promote engagement with stakeholders, with the aim of enhancing the value of corporate sustainability.

Fourth, the R&D strategy division and R&D administration division will be integrated, and an R&D planning and coordination division will be established, according to Mitsui Chemicals. The purpose is to integrate each function of the R&D strategy division and R&D administration division in the R&D center, and to promote “the formulation, development, enhancement, and management of the R&D strategies,” which are the fundamental roles of the divisions.
