Historical Origins

The various Mitsubishi group companies are breathtakingly diverse and involved in a vast range of businesses. Yet, despite this great diversity, all group companies maintain one common philosophy that continues to underlie their activities, even after more than 150 years. That shared philosophy is encapsulated in a creed articulated by the fourth president of the Mitsubishi organization, Koyata Iwasaki, in the 1930s.

Today this philosophy is referred to as the "Three Principles" (called "Sankoryo" in Japanese). Although more than 80 years have passed since the philosophy was codified, the spirit and values of Sankoryo remain alive and current today in Mitsubishi group companies, both in their business dealings and their activities aimed to help society.
