Mitsubishi Electric Tree Planting 2014
Three Mitsubishi Electric companies in Indonesia—PT. Mitsubishi Electric Indonesia, PT. Mitsubishi Electric Automotive Indonesia, and PT. Mitsubishi Jaya Elevator and Escalator—with support from Mitsubishi Electric Asia Pte. Ltd in Singapore carried out a tree planting event behind SMAN 10 Depok High School on September 13, 2014. As the Depok City Government had planned to build an Arboretum Garden in the city, the three Mitsubishi Electric companies supported them by planting a total of 500 trees for the arboretum, consisting of 24 different types of trees, as an environmental awareness initiative of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
Moreover, they made a donation to this high school which they chose to work with, following the Depok City Government's suggestion. Since the school was newly built in July, it was a good timing to donate supplies such as three computers, three fans, and six garbage cans.
Planting of 1000 Trees, Drawing Competition, and Other Philanthropic Activities
On September 14, 2013, PT. Mitsubishi Electric Automotive Indonesia (MEAINA) conducted a tree planting on Mount Gede and Mount Pangrango, in West Java. Some 400 employees participated and planted about 1,000 trees. This activity was carried out with cooperation of an NGO that focuses on environmental conservation, particularly in the vicinity of Mount Gede and Mount Pangrango. Since the event, MEAINA has been monitoring the area where the trees were planted, and in the future it plans to conduct this tree planting every year to show its concern for the environment, in the spirit of “for a greener tomorrow”-the tagline of Mitsubishi Electric's corporate environmental statement Eco Changes.
As part of the tree planting, MEAINA also donated medical supplies and other daily necessities such as food and clothing to impoverished people in a village. Furthermore, it held a drawing competition, in which local children gathered to draw environmentally-related pictures and learn more about how to preserve our planet.
MEAINA has always felt that one of its missions is to care for people in need and share with others, and its employees feel very grateful that their company provides so many opportunities to make the world a better place. An overwhelming number of employees participated in these activities and showed their enthusiasm for philanthropy.
Ambulance Donation and Philanthropic Activities in an Underdeveloped Village in Cikarang
PT. Mitsubishi Electric Automotive Indonesia (MEAINA) conducted a series of philanthropic activities on July 6 -7, 2013.
On the first day, MEAINA donated an ambulance to Baituzzakat Madani Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides healthcare for needy people in the Bekasi area, West Java, and is based about 20 km from the MEAINA factory. The Foundation offers free medical examinations and consultations to needy people in the Bekasi area, and expects the ambulance to be a great asset in carrying out its humanitarian operations. In addition, the ambulance will be used to transport patients from small hospitals to larger hospitals in the surrounding areas at no charge.
On the second day, MEAINA collaborated with Baituzzakat Madani Foundation to provide free medical care to senior citizens in the village of Sukamanah, which is located about 25 km from the MEAINA factory in the Cikarang area. Furthermore, MEAINA donated food supplies as well as school supplies for children, and employee volunteers cleaned and repainted a mosque in the area. This was made possible through the generous financial support of the company itself, as well as voluntary monthly donations made by a large number of employees.
