Risk management

Basic Policy

The Mitsubishi Electric Group engages in the development, manufacture and sale of a broad range of products in diverse sectors, including the Energy & Electric Systems, Industrial Automation Systems, Information & Communication Systems, Electronic Devices and Home Appliances. Moreover, the Group operates these businesses not only in Japan but overseas, such as in North America, Europe and Asia.

To respond to the expectations of all stakeholders beginning with society, customers, shareholders, suppliers and employees, and to realize sustainable growth, the Group has a framework in place for managing business-related risks in an appropriate manner.

The framework provides proper responses to risks depending on their type, size and impact. For example, by incorporating risk management into business activities, risks are managed according to the size and characteristics of each business, and important risks that cover the entire Group are mainly managed by corporate departments.
