Participation in Initiatives
MinebeaMitsumi also stress the importance of and strive to fulfill the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, in which we announced our participation in 2012, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit 2015.
Support for the United Nations Global Compact
MinebeaMitsumi expressed support for the United Nations Global Compact (the "UNGC") in January 2012.
The UNGC was advocated by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan at the World Economic Forum in Davos on January 1999, and is clearly supported by current United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
It is a voluntary initiative to participate in the development of a global framework for businesses to act as a good member of society and realize sustainable growth by exercising creative, responsible leadership.
The MinebeaMitsumi Group also participates in the sectional meeting organized by Global Compact Network Japan and is commited to the achievement of the Ten Principales in cooperation with leading companies in Japan.
