Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics Corporation has obtained ISCC PLUS certification Note 1, which is one of the international certification systems for sustainable products. By obtaining this certification, we will begin handling ISCC PLUS certified polycarbonate, which uses sustainable raw materials allocated through the mass balance approachNote 2, both domestically and overseas.

In addition, the Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, Inc. Kashima Plant (polycarbonate manufacturing), group company Kashima Polymers Corporation (pellet-shaped products and functional compound products), and MGC Filsheet Co., Ltd. (high hardness and high transparency sheet products and film products for molding) have completed the certification process, which has made it possible to broadly develop and offer biomass polycarbonate products in previously challenging fields such as automobiles, electrical and electronics products, optics, office automation, and semiconductors through the mass balance approach in our supply chain.

To reduce CO2 emissions, we are promoting initiatives, etc. aimed at introducing recycling technologies in cooperation with related companies and securing sustainable raw materials beginning with efforts to convert products to bio-based products through the mass balance approach based on ISCC PLUS certification.

The company will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society through the environmental response initiatives of the polycarbonate business based on the Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Group’s mission of “creating value to share with society.”

  • The ISCC PLUS certification run by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is an international certification that manages and ensures the sustainability of raw materials in the global supply chain.
  • This approach allocates sustainability to part of a product according to the sustainable raw material inputs when manufacturing products by mixing raw materials with sustainable characteristics (e.g., biomass-derived raw materials) with those that are unsustainable (e.g., petroleum-derived raw materials).

Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics Corporation promises and declares that it shall comply with the ISCC PLUS requirements under the latest ISCC rules.
