                    Stakeholder Engagement

                    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.

                    Approach to opportunities, risks, and disclosure regarding ESG

                    Ms. Sato: Risks and opportunities are two sides of the same coin, so business risks can become opportunities. It's important to strive for quantitative gauging and providing good explanation of concrete actions over the scope that can be controlled. It is necessary for short-term, medium-term and long-term goals to be connected, and to set a solid policy for the future, while frankly conveying the short-term issues.

                    Mr. Tamaki: Since talk about climate change has become inextricably linked to financial information, concerning the method of disclosure too, it is desirable to discuss conventional financial information and non-financial information together. Unless climate change is recognized within business, it can pose a risk to management.

                    Mr. Pedersen: To make a contribution over all three themes of opportunities, risks, and information disclosure, it is important to pin one's colors to the mast and exhibit leadership through pioneering initiatives. If MUFG takes steps with a spirit of being a world leader in terms of sustainable finance, numerous positive ripple effects are sure to arise from there.

                    Expectations on MUFG

                    Mr. Sueyoshi: Concerning the response to climate change, the fountainhead of MUFG's trust lies in sharing and announcing its goals with the world. I also expect MUFG to display leadership by proposing policies for supporting renewable energy in Japan and holding dialogue with the government.

                    Mr. Pedersen: As a leading company, it needs to display leadership in “pioneering a sustainable future” and have a solid sustainability strategy.

                    Mr. Tamaki: I think that SDGs and ESG in finance converge into sustainable finance. We should address them in the mainstream of management while staying aware of developments in Europe and America. This will lead to sharing of goals with the world and reduction of business risks.

                    Ms. Murakami: To address the critical global issue of “divide”, I think the key is to consider “how to create high-quality employment”. Providing opportunities and creating an environment in which people in the overall community including MUFG's employees can upgrade their skills in the digital society will help to enhance the corporate value in the long term. I hope that MUFG can present a model for Japan, where digitization is arising simultaneously with a declining birthrate.

                    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.

                    Dialogue with Employees

                    MUFG holds town hall meetings and round-table conferences aimed at enhancing mutual understanding between top management and employees and ensuring that MUFG's visions and policies are shared by all.

                    Furthermore, MUFG's executives often visit branches and interact with the frontline employees who directly engage with customers, exchanging insights about how to enhance MUFG's onsite capabilities. This interaction is an example of their efforts to create a better workplace in which employees' opinions are reflected in business operations and every employee finds their job rewarding.
