UBE was founded over 120 years ago on the principles of “coexistence and mutual prosperity” with communities and “from finite mining to infinite industry.” UBE and its Group companies have continued to embrace these founding principles, expanding the scope of their businesses while tackling new technologies and continually transforming in order to keep with the changing times and structural changes in industry.
UBE has clearly restated its corporate philosophy and management principles as a basis for its business efforts in meeting ever-diversifying and complex needs, and creating new value for society. In April 2019, the Company updated its philosophy and principles to share with all stakeholders.
In accordance with these changes, the Company has also revised the UBE Group Action Guidelines, which were established as a template to guide the business conduct of all personnel of UBE and UBE Group companies.
In 2022, UBE has clearly defined its purpose, its raison d'être as a group and announced it.
