That’s KAITEKI – a Japanese word that encapsulates the Mitsubishi group’s philosophy to use science and innovation to create and nurture a society in which quality of life improves for all in a sustainable way. It’s a powerful concept that asks everyone in the company to work in a way that balances the needs of our precious planet, our communities and our people.

It’s at the very heart of why we are in business. Everyone has a role to play. Every decision we make, big or small, has a consequence. A decision to improve a poor practice, fix a safety hazard – even to turn lights off when leaving a building. Everyone contributes to conserving resources and improving the quality of life – that is the KAITEKI way.

We’re shaping a safer future

We have a responsibility to ourselves, our environment and to everyone in our community. Zero injuries is our goal and we have one of the best safety records in the chemical sector. Ensuring that everyone goes home safely and in good health every day is our constant priority. We are also working on developing our processes to help us to reduce our environmental footprint and contribute to the protection of society and our planet.

We’re shaping happier lives and communities

Lucite International makes a difference to the local community wherever it operates. Whether we’re helping to paint a community centre, volunteering for good causes or helping to brighten lives, we give our time and skills in many ways. This is important to us because happier communities make for healthier and happier lives. We want to give something back, be good neighbours and show that we care.
