Enhancing Our Corporate Value through Committed Engagement with Stakeholders
MUFG believes that winning the support of its various stakeholders is essential to securing sustainable growth in its business activities and thus its corporate value. In line with this belief, we engage with stakeholders via a variety of channels and take heed of their expectations and requests to make improvements in our business management.
MUFG’s Channels for Communication with Stakeholders
Engagement with Communities, Local Societies and the Environment
MUFG employees proactively participate in volunteer activities and local events as members of the communities they serve. Such efforts are intended to enhance interaction with other community members and nurture ties with them.
At the same time, MUFG engages with NGOs and NPOs that work to resolve issues society is confronting, incorporating the insights and advice such bodies provide into its environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. Moreover, MUFG takes part in a variety of external collaborative initiatives to address ESG issues and engages in dialogue with other participants. By doing so, MUFG strives to maintain the trust and confidence of local societies at home and abroad.
