Manabu Chikumoto, Representative Corporate Executive Officer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mitsubishi Chemical Group takes charge on April 1, 2024.

“I am determined to join hands with all of you working for the Mitsubishi Chemical Group (MCG Group) to realize KAITEKI,” Chikumoto said in a message to Group employee.

“Our Purpose is to lead with innovative solutions to achieve KAITEKI, the well-being of people and the planet. This is why our company exists and is central to the work of every employee. As you think about your daily work and how it connects to delivering our many products and solutions, remember that the ultimate goal is to realize this Purpose, ensuring a positive future for society and the planet,” he added.

In 2020, MCG announced KAITEKI Vision 30 (KV30), its medium- to long-term basic management strategy. “In formulating KV30, we envisioned our society in the year 2050 in concrete terms and identified social issues that we could best contribute to solving by backcasting from our vision. Four years have passed since then, and the world has become increasingly complex with the pandemic, rapidly evolving climate change, growing geopolitical risks, and more. The chemical industry is also faced with major challenges, such as becoming carbon neutral (CN) and contributing toward a circular economy (CE). Given the substantial global changes, the leadership team is now revisiting KAITEKI Vision 30 and formulating a renewed vision and strategy for 2035 to ensure that we are once again on a path toward achieving KAITEKI,” he added.
